Haibun - Riptide


For hours and miles, I have been wandering on the beach.
We were supposed to spend the summer here but you have
died unexpectedly and now my life is adrift.

Between two stones I free a trapped blue-clawed crab - I
imagine she has gotten lost, trying to find her way.

ocean waves --
pebbles roll around
in the riptide
