3 Haiku

In January 2007 the fishing trawler, 'Pere Charles'was lost off Dunmore East. Co Waterford, 
Ireland, with the loss of five fishermen. I knew four of them, two very well.

                                         Pere Charles 

                                   Soft water all quiet
                           Bubbles of air take last breath
                               Five souls bid goodbye

                                       Flowing Music

                                   White water tinkling 
                                Exudes musical moments
                                  Hear a perfect peace

                                           Soft Power

                                      Soft flowing water
                               Creates valley and canyon
                                      Kisses ocean, free

    So you are in Canada? I was thinking ireland or something. NO, I am in Utah, but that Edmond Fitzgerald song was famous in the 70's. And yes, I think some of us really do have a sort of love affair with our cars. My kia has ten year warranty and in ten years, she is gone. I like her ok. but I GOTTA get another ragtop!! LUv, Andrea
