The Apathetic Sea
Author: Kyle Chittick
Date: 06.01.2008

crashing waves pound steel
wind blusters, flailing aged paint
a compass points home

submitted via in the 'Haiku' contest for June 2008. Rules were supplied as follows:

For this contest you are challenged to write a Haiku poem. Haiku is a
form of poetry that only uses three lines. The first line contains five
(5) syllables, the second line seven (7) syllables, and the third line
contains five (5) syllables.

Haiku doesn't rhyme. A Haiku must "paint" a mental image in the reader's
mind. This is the challenge of Haiku - to put the poem's meaning and
imagery in the reader's mind in only 17 syllables over just three lines
of poetry.

It's often about nature but we are keeping the topic open. Write about
nature, feelings, or experiences - whatever you feel will work - that
follows this format.
