Coalesce with still river;
watch silver fish leap.

Thank you, David:-) It was a beautiful walk we took last week at the start of Autumn, but on a day as warm as Summer!
This is beautiful. I love water poetry.
Thank you 🙂 Water is such a never-ending source of inspiration with its ever-changing moods.
A beautiful and peaceful scene and haiku. Have a great week, Sarah. 🙂
Thank you, Sylvia:-) Yes, it was a beautiful and peaceful scene, and I’m glad I managed to reflect this in the haiku. You have a great week, too.
I love the word choices here, Sarah, from estuary to coalesce and still river. How magical! And, as far as illusions, for a second there, I thought the (sheep?) on the far shore were the jumping fish.
Thanks, Leigh 🙂
Lol, perhaps they’re inter-dimensional sheep-fish!
Magnificent. The beautiful imagery of peering over a still lake ripples out within this poem.
Thank you for your kind words 🙂
Thanks, Dale 🙂
I can feel the tranquillity here and the joy of the fish leaping 🙂
The fish were beautiful and I’ve never seen such silver ones glistening like that in the sun. The water is very clean there, so I guess they’re bursting with health and vitality. Only wish that I could have photographed them jumping!
