At Dawn: A Haibun


The window was open it being a warm July evening in a hotel overlooking the beach in Scarborough.  The sound of the waves and the calling of the gulls had been soothing in the night, but now slumber was interrupted by the tractors of the local council as they smoothed the sands for another day and the scores of beach-goers yet to arrive.

Dawn breaks above waves
Waves break upon quiet sands
Bathers still abed

  1. Oh I LOVE this one. I can feel and hear it. So many happy memories of Scarborough. I didn’t realise you were in the U.K. anyway, this did my heart good this morning. Thankyou.
