Quadruple Haiku

I have been reading an excellent nonfiction book “The Dragon Behind The Glass” by Emily Voigt. She is an amazing writer that captured my attention immediately with her descriptions of the colorful characters in the fish world. I love when writers have me laughing out loud and thinking at the same time!!!
I am having a hard time coming up with a poem today. I had the day off and
went to the beach and people watched. One child ran off and started messing up another child’s sand castle until his mom picked him up and put him back on her beach blanket. The other child did not care because she was having too much fun anyway. It was cute to see him being dragged off though.

Quadruple Haiku
He ran off to play
with another sand castle
but was sent back home.
They looked so tempting
he had to smash the towers
and pick off the sticks.
The little girl kept
sculpting her torn down castles
with a careful eye.
He was dragged away
by his mother on her hip
and had to stay put.
