Summer haiku: Surf, rain, & sun(set)

[I've diverged from the traditional 5-7-5 format with the first two poems below.]

Two beautiful young blonde boys
Dancing through the surf
Making us smile so
Just by their presence.

Drip drop splish splash rain comes down
Soaking the already-soaked ground
So that our shoes leak.

Wait a little bit –
Wait a half-hour to see it.
Yes! Sparkling sunset.
