HuMp DaY Haiku - Low Tide

Flower Moon low tide
Intertidal zone exposed
Treasure hunts begin

Low tide at the full May moon had me out wandering the tide flats looking for treasures. Eel grass is thick at Marine Park's low intertidal zone and the few rocks are closer to the shore line. I saw a variety of birds and these tiny starfish. Compare them to the snails which are as big as a thumb. These are all small guys; the little green one the smallest I've discovered in my various treasure hunts. 

I have found that creating a haiku (non rhyming poem with 5 - 7 - 5 syllables per line) feeds my soul. I especially like creating them to go with my photos and art.

Hi Helen. Oh my goodness it has been years since last I saw the ocean/river or lakes, except of course on TV. We just don't go there. It's beautiful and your photos are just great. Yes you could find treasures at low tide. Great Haiku. Have a wonderful rest of the week and thank you for accepting my invite.
