Solitude

- is the haiku theme this week at onedeepbreath.

This is another of my holiday photographs, the beach at Mt Maunganui. As we were outside the school holiday period, we had it largely to ourselves much of the time.

- the incoming tide
covers my footprints

That looks and sounds like a little slice of heaven....

It's an amazing feeling to be homesick for a place I've never been to....

That is a beautiful beach. I want to go there too. I love being on deserted beaches, where the only footsteps for the tide to cover are you own.

I love an isolated beach and your haiku said it beautifully :)

Glad you enjoyed the pics.

the depth a few well put words can conjure, such ebb and flow, it stirs profoundly!

This is why I love winter beaches. Solitude and disappearing footprints.
