    Beautiful poem and lovely setting. I wonder whether we also listen and remember.
    The sound to the sea.

  10. I like the little poem, but I do not think it is a haiku, by the strict definition. Haiku have 17 syllables in three lines with; 5, 7, 5 syllables (top to bottom). This poem has: 5, 8, 6. To scrunch the last line into 5 syllables, you could write it this way: “To the list’ning ear.” You could rephrase the second line to fit 7 syllables this way: “It’s life at sea and murmurs.” You could rephrase the last line, for 5 syllables, more drastically as: “To receptive ears.”

    The shell remembers
    It’s life at sea and murmurs
    To receptive ears.
