Meditations on the Half Shell: A Haiku String

By A.J. Huffman

Posted on

Waves leave me stranded
My body recalls the pull
of salty siren

I echo remorse
My shell an amplifier
of solitude

The sun rises
My body warms to resolve
accepts stasis

Hours tick like time bombs
Metronomic visions
of feet and feathers

Owning neither
I sink further into sand
pretend I am coffin

Waiting for death
I discover a new concept

The world moved forward 
into perceived reversal 
I am recycled

Arms of tomorrow
embrace me like yesterday
I breath as if I am home.
