Escapism”

 while body’s earthbound
at least the mind reaches out
tastes salt on the wind
touches shifting flour sand
washes clean in frigid waves

[ An old picture taken at Long Beach, Washington. It's my go-to place when I need to imagine somewhere calm and comforting. ]

Not that I want to sound like I don’t appreciate the attention my haiku/photos get, but it IS kinda frustrating to have something I spent a bit of time on be waaaay more popular than something I agonized over for days or weeks. XD But people like short stuff, I suppose…
