Lake Michigan in the Morning

I wrote this hiaku decades ago at summer camp.
Recently posted it on Facebook and got no reaction whatsoever.

Let's see what you cultured people think:

Lake Michigan in the Morning
Gray and bored, she sighs
Rhythmic waves onto the shore
Softly begs me, "Wake."

A poetic dawn?

Okay for some reason all I can think is... just jump in that water and you'll be awake - LOL. But it is a very pretty haiku - I like it.

Nice. A bloom of imagery explodes in my head.

I think you have lame Facebook friends. You should be friends with me.

It's beautiful. It brings to mind sweet images of water.
