haiku 8

ancient lighthouse stands
tiny sailboat drifts alone
warm wind finds a song

In response to what you told me, Your lovely sister sounds like a saint. If I lived alone and had money, I too would adopt various animals and let them stay in my home. But it is not something I can do in my circumstances. And probably I would be a "cat lady!"

Dear Donna: A lovely haiku fragment. I can see the lighthouse. I feel the song of the stray wind. I hear the somnolent sing-song of the midday breeze. You have capture an Aha! moment here. Well done. Leon

Beautiful haiku you've got here, sis. Have y'all thawed out yet? We have, but it was ugly for a few days ...a lot of power out.

Hey kayode...thanks so much for the visit..:-) :-) the song comes to me when the wind catches the sail and pops and rustles them...wakes you up from daydreaming....:-) :-)

This is a glorious write, I really enjoyed reading this delightful poem this evening! I love all three elements that you have presented within this natural piece...Lighthouse, Sailboat, and the Wind [with the Song], are all phenomenal, Great Work!!

Thank you Russell...every time I sailed..years ago..when all was quiet and then the wind would pop and rustle the sails...catch the wind...it was like that to me...appreciate your visit..
