March Haiku : Sunshine

As usual, I had several attempts at composing this month's haiku, using the word prompt of sunshine.
I finally settled for

" Molten copper ball
In cerulean blue sky;
Surf tumbling on shore."

My A4 sized quiltlet was formed with the background of Lutradur bonded to blue homespun.
Using a card stencil I laid Expandapaint in the shape of a corona; heat treated it to get dimensional effect and then gilded it.
Using silk fabric and Angelina film I created the "ball"...the actual sun.
Next was to applique the sea tumbling on the white shores.
