Some haiku:
Bent double shrimping / I follow a crab crawling / from rock pool to beach

his is a beach on land / of sand from different ages / let it sift through your fingers

Squelching feet on mud / pebbles on the river bed / swish through the grasses

Went down the shoreline/several rocks and mirror/mud and light leaving

Bucket and a spade / digging out lugworms as bait / the sea angler works

rollers bring back detritus

Walking on your shore
You bring, make, take memories

gaze out and phase out, rock-pooling this shore lining, treasure maps mark natures timing

Sea losing its way / in crevices and pooled / light darkens the day

Electra gave us 5 word prompts:

Wood silvering
butterflies drifting; nest enclosing; skin glowing

Tentative foothold
Wire sagging
Garden ponds dripping and seeping
Gardens clipped
Fingers pricked on roses and hawthorns
spluttering time
