Haiku for One Single Impression

One Single Impression posts: Thanks to Sweetest in the Gale (formerly Fledgling Poet) for this week's prompt, ocean. Feel free to follow the links and play along and/or to read some fine writings.

emotive tides
unbound by monthly moon
re-write the shore


swirling blues
rock seaweed to and fro
Gaia's cradle

I like this much
Chaos and Eros I know
Gaia here I learned

mother of the earth
Gaia and Uranus sire
offspring so many
I will let these and the others rest:
Chaos, Aether, Gaia, Uranus,
Hemera, Chronos, Eros, Erebus,
Nyx, Ophion, Tartarus, and Phanes.

"Simple Simon went a-fishing
For to catch a whale;
All the water he could find
Was in his mother's pail!"
This is me and Greek mythology.

My mom's pail is mostly Wikipedia.

Thanks, I wish I would read a book a day like you do.
Gaia, Wikipedia Greek mythology reference

Amazing and wonderful. Gaia's cradle is a wonderful image--a strong and beautiful, intuitive and subtle beauty.

Both words and art fetch the reader's attention with their strong images and rewritten shores. Well done.
