Crash & Sizzle [Free Verse]

waves roll over 
with a soft crashing
white noise
that splays out into a sizzle
as foamy water
expands flatly over hot sand

until the sizzle is washed out
by the next wet crash

and then more sizzle

and then more crash

sizzle & crash
crash & sizzle

Desert Haiku

Cubes of sand
Tumble on a tiny scale
Scouring history

Camel lurches
Only in a land of sand
could it kneel

Grain of sand
Do you miss the sea
from whence you came?

Bleached bones
Sandblasted lopsided
How will you go?

Wind blown
zebra stripes in the sand
Nature’s echo
