Stormy Seas #poetry #haiku


the rough sea
flowing toward Sado Isle
the River of Heaven

at sea

vessel seems so small

moon taunts the vast rolling sea

playing with match sticks

*

holding true to course

stars our trustworthy guides

nefarious clouds

We celebrate a month with Carpe Diem and 2nd Anniversary. Today’s prompt Rough Seas

  1. The on-line world…it’s just a condensed faster-paced version of the real one. But, amongst the strangeness and weirdness, there are some gems. You’re one of them, Leslie. Glad you’ve stuck around. 🙂 Oh, and I would NEVER say nice poem. That’s like saying, “Have a nice day” – it’s vacuous and meaningless. I will say how much I have always enjoyed your poetry and your thoughts. Hope you had an amazing summer.
