Looking out to sea

A long days wait looking  for lights

Cold cold  the  harbour

Lost loved ones to cruel sea

Pain mirrored in harbour Lights.

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Mirror like  the  sea

Shows life stormy and  becalmed

No safe harbour yet

Thrashed on the rocks  we cling on

Hoping against hope  for calm.

 

Holiday Haiku

Blue skies, sound of waves

Sun hot, so un-English like

Loving holidays.

This is my entry to Ronovanwrite’s weekly Haiku challenge.

Please don’t waste your life

Chargrin is too much effort

Joy is much less strife

On the edge I stand

Broken and full of chargrin

All joy lost and banned

Give me joy and life

Chargrin is a waste of time

Run towards the light

RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #142 Spring&Fresh


When fresh winds do blow

Spring is on it’s way, we know

Buds bloom flowers grow.

       ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A breath of fresh air

She put a spring in his step

Giving him new life.


               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The spring fresh water

Bubbles from the cold grey rocks

Quenching the long thirst.
