Sensational Haiku Wednesday: Waves


"Don't make any waves!"
was her family's demand
her voice still silenced

With ocean tides' help
secrets have special knack for
washing up on shore

Wondering about not making waves is something truly sensational! The sensational haiku is true to its name, indeed!

Joy always,

isn't it sad to be repressed by rules made by others? i agree with you on secrets. the harder you hide them, the faster they get washed up on shore. brilliant haiku!

Thought you were writing my story there in the first one. :) Love the second too, secrets do have a knack of washing up on shore.

I know of a family that lives like this very sad. Your Haiku was so profound Polly. Have a blessed day.

I'm the person who cannon balls into the pool and knocks everyone else around with my waves ;P

Some secrets are like waves of poison... I'd love to hear your story some time. And I wish for you to some day be free from it all.
