A few lines telling about the so called raging hormones of youth.

Clear serene waters
Hold a mystery within
Deep down in its bed

Secrets of the sea
Lying still beneath the tides
Waiting to be free!

Soothing and peaceful
The age of puberty sounds like a teenager
like the tides struggling to free out
Of puberty and forcing the teen
To adult hood
Beautifully written Haiku
Love Peace and Hugssss....Morning Star
