3 – 21 – featured haiku writer

towering brown kelp
algae rich in nutrients

Here is the third haiku from our featured haiku writer, Ken Gierke. He retired and was then transplanted from Western New York to Missouri. He finds himself missing familiar sights, but reminds himself that familiarity is a state of mind. Have you visited his blog yet at Rivrvlogr

I loved the image of the “towering brown kelp” – such a brilliant image for kelp floating in water.
This haiku is part of my OCEAN series.

    When scuba diving, life, color, and texture can be seen in many places other than the exotic tropical scenes that get the most coverage, and I tried to convey that with this.
