on ocean floor
fyi: Sand Dollar legend is if you break the sand
dollar five white doves will be released
to spread good will & peace across the earth.

That’s quite a story, one that I’ve never heard before.

We need to find more of these and release those doves!! Earth needs more peace is the message!!

Would love to see reference to the doves in the haiku because of the legend. sand dollars/on ocean floor/doves fly overhead? What you wrote about them is so beautiful.

Thank you for the suggestion…after I wrote and posted it,
I realized that there were probably several more sets I could write,
or a cascading haiku but hadn’t put my mind to it.

This is a very informative and interesting Haiku, the concept of sand dollar is fascinating!

Thank you for the comment…before I moved to Maine, I had never heard of a sand dollar. I find it interesting to find them on the shore and that so many people make gorgeous jewelry and other crafts from them.

Fascinating!! I had to look up what ‘sand dollar’ meant.. Thanks for sharing the legend…! And of course, the haiku was simple and wonderful! 🙂 Keep writing!

Thank you for your comment. I hadn’t heard of the legend until I had found some and was going to give them to some children. Then someone asked me if I knew of it. Actually there are a couple of versions. One for Christmas and Easter, but I like this one because it is non-denominational and all faiths can enjoy.
