Waves rake inky sand.
Poseidon's rage traced in
Selene's embrace.

In this Haiku I've tried to express the power of the sea as a personification, using the Greek gods as a vehicle for metaphor. Poseidon is the Greek god of the sea and Selene is a titan/goddess of the moon. I have included links within the text of the Haiku to learn more about these deities from Greek mythology.

This is day two of my month long challenge - from the 13th of May until the 12th of June - to post a daily Haiku on steem. Each week will have a different theme based on picture prompts from either or This week's broad theme is different natural environments.
