A little more than a year ago, I received my first haiku, sent by Haiku Andy.
Yesterday I had the joy of receiving another one!
Haiku Andy creates a haiku each day and mails it to an address he picks randomly from his hat of friends.
As he states in the back of each postcard:
Every day, I write a haiku and publish it via social media.
Every day, I physically inscribe that same haiku on a single postcard and mail it to someone in the world.
Today, that someone is you.
So, here is ‘my’ haiku!
Enjoy this haiku and please do visit his blog for more, here
and congratulate him for being featured at Litquake 2014’s Off The Richter Scale.

first things first
is the ocean today?
Categories: Appreciation, Friends
The haiku is lovely. I like that you photographed it in two locations. It fits the poem.
I know some people–used to be friends but no longer–who would say the ocean’s color is the exact opposite of whatever I would say. You understand why they are no longer friends.
Even if they are no longer friends though, the contrast in perception can be …an eye opener! 😉
Ah, such a simple yet complex question. It’s all about the observation, isn’t it:)
Spoken by a true expert like you, Elena… indeed it is! 🙂
Nice one, Marina! 🙂
Thank you, my friend!! 🙂
What a great idea dear Marina!❤️
It is, isn’t it?!!! 🙂 xxxx
what color is your ocean today? I’m sure you know what you’re talking about!
I think our ocean today is very dark greyish blue. Its been raining. Andy, however might have had a different color in mind! 🙂 Thank you, Frizz, for this amazing photo of Santorini! 🙂
Oh, so simple and true, love it 🙂
🙂 I agree, Ioanna!!!! 🙂

I have it on good authority it was Blue, but it was grey earlier (Perranporth, Cornwall)
🙂 !!! Here it was grey-blue …but what am I saying, we don’t have an ocean here… only the Mediterranean sea!!!! 😉
