6 Haikus in Honor of the Santa Clara University Environmental Law Society’s Beach Clean-up (September 16, 2017)

These haikus were composed in honor of the Santa Clara Environmental Law Society’s Beach Clean-up Activity a couple of weeks ago. Santa Clara Law Beach Clean-up - September 2017

Natural Bridges
Wonder on the Western sea
Death strikes on the shore

Sea otter carcass
Devon, Mike and Natalie
silently weeping

Ocean waters rise
Robin, Ayla and Laura
murdering the trash

Rubbish in the brier
cigarette butts like locusts
Cynthia unbowed

Litter galore, help!
Josi and Antonia
rush in from abroad

Traffic cone, gas can
Brian and Arielle – score!
Litter defeated.
