D is for Death

For the second year I decided to participate in the A-Z Blogging Challenge.  Each April bloggers write for 26 days (Sundays off). Each day is a consecutive letter of the alphabet.

Today is April 4th   and I’m Delighted to be here.

Another Haiku from The Bench.

Beach of Death

On the beach of death

crimson hot sand strewn with souls

tide reaches for me


Dashing around to see what you’ve Dreamed up.


Apparently I had several versions of this one. How do you keep track of your drafts?

  1. So few words, such powerful imagery! Love it, Sue!

  2. Compelling poetry Sue! I really enjoyed it 🙂

    Chilling but beautiful poem!
    I have one master draft, and do my best to keep it up to date. I think it’s important for me to commit to the changes I am making. It’s comforting to have the older versions clearly marked and ready to go back in case I feel I need to but I haven’t had to do that yet. 🙂

    Great and powerful post! I’m loving your A to Z’s 🙂

  5. At once, I get a sense of detachment and connection to the beach. Beautiful! Good photo, Susan. 🙂

  6. Wow… powerful stuff, Susan. About the drafts: I use Scrivener. Problem solved 😀

    Thanks for stopping over at Quiet Laughter earlier today; much appreciated 🙂

    Very nice, Sue! Although I’m amazed at how many D is for Death posts I’m coming across. I may have to split my blog visits up today. It’s getting a little depressing. 🙂

    Have you considered adding a link to the blog from sassyspeaks, or am I just missing it? I keep having to look you up!

  8. It looks like a hostile coastline.

  9. Deep and moving poem.
