The lighthouse,
A landmark on the edge,
Waiting for the tide to turn.

    1. 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!πŸͺπŸ™‹β€β™‚️

  1. 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?

    Hokku Novice,

  2. 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. 🌷

    1. Dear Morag, thank you for your lovely comments πŸ’. The weather has changed today and it’s raining, heavily! At least the gardens are being watered β˜”πŸ™
