There is something about a lighthouse 🤗🙏
Sweet poem to go with the wonderful scene! Hope all is well in your life and world 🙂
Thank you Katelon for your wonderful comments. Whilst we are experiencing “extreme heat” in NI (31c) we are well but trying to find a breeze!🪁🙋♂️
Lovely photos of a summer’s day at Donaghadee!
I’m sure you know it well since it is only a dozen miles away from bonnie Scotland🌞🙋♂️
I read your email and I think that this actually is a hokku, and a good one…it’s about nature and mankind’s place in nature. We know that Bashō was not a stickler for how many sounds/syllables placed in a verse, so I wouldn’t be concerned about that. *If* you are, then maybe reduce the number of words in line 3… for example, “Waiting for high tide.” but I don’t think that’s necessary. So, if you allow me to do so, I’d like to transplant this verse and use one of the photos. Would that be okay with you?

Hi Edo! I’m happy for you to transplant it just as it is. Knowing the gardener I’m sure it will settle in well.🌻
Hello from Vancouver. You captured the symbolism of lighthouses in your poetry. Thank you for starting my day with a sense of renewal.
Hello from Northern Ireland and thank you for your wonderful comments! A new day, and always with hope for our future! 💐💐🙋♂️
We have never been to Ireland, but we have plans. In the meantime, I’ll be tagging along with you.
Thank you 🙋♂️
The color of the sky is gorgeous and so is the water – wonderful pictures!
Thanks for dropping in Meg and for your lovely thoughts 💐🙋♂️
Brilliant! You found your lighthouse. Love the images. Where is this?
Thank you, Gabriel, it’s at Donaghadee where Belfast Lough spills out into the Irish Sea. 💐🙋♂️
Oh lovely. Are you going to try and doodle it now?! 😁
I might just do that Gabriel! 🤗🙋♂️
Such simplicity in poetry and in images, yet capturing so much more. The edge of waters, transitions, keep the light, marking our journeys. Have a great week. 🌷
Dear Morag, thank you for your lovely comments 💐. The weather has changed today and it’s raining, heavily! At least the gardens are being watered ☔🙏
You are welcome, and I am happy to hear that the garden is getting a good soaking. 🙌🌧️☔
Lovely, simple verse & photos, Ashley! And that beautiful sky, oh my! 🌞
Thank you, Lisa. It’s not like that these past two days. Back to more normal ☔☔
