With a haiku, the author frames an image, evokes a theme, and then lets the reader interpret what he reads. Unfortunately, that makes it really hard to review a haiku properly. Most of what I say will be my interpretation of your words. Still, I'll give it a shot. 1) It's very hard to determine exactly what this poem is referring to. It's easy to draw conclusions, of course. It could be about a beach or a sandcastle, or a desert. However, you don't really give the reader a particular image to work with. Traditional haiku poets would probably frown on this, but I think it's appropriate for the theme of the poem.2) On a related note, there's very little to visually connect your three lines. They all evoke different images. This isn't really a bad thing, but it puts a little more interpretive strain on the reader.3) Honestly, that's about all there is for me to critique here. I like the poem, and there just isn't enough material here for me to really analyze. I will say this, though: have you ever tried writing tanka? Structurally, they're similar to the haiku. The syllable order goes 5,7,5,7,7. They're still short poems, but they give the writer a little more room to work with. For a poem like this one, I think the extra room would be helpful.

Wow the mystical aura makes me want to float away.. It creates just a wonderful picture! Reminds me of a Haiku I once wrote, called "Ancient Lore":

Nameless grief, whispersSands hiding fluid orchidsLong forgotten dreams

Keep on writing ;)
