Monday Morning #Haiku 173 & 174 — Estuary (03)

Breeze plays on boat masts
a tune of distant wind chimes:
estuary peace.

Breeze ripples water
traversed by sun-silvered path.
Clouds trill with skylarks.

  1. Dear Sarah,

    I love “clouds trill with skylarks.” ๐Ÿ˜€ Very picturesque. Love the photos, too. It all made me want to sit on the beach and watch the waves. Although I don’t usually sit on a beach. I’m more wont to dive in. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Lovely haiku.

    Shalom and Happy Monday,

    1. Dear Rochelle,

      I took those two pictures when I disappeared off for a week at the end of August to the Isle of Wight. It really was a very perfect day, filled with laughter, light and peace, as we wandered around a nature reserve. Hardly a car to be heard, or any planes. So unusual these days. Like medicine for the soul.

      All best wishes for a happy week.



  2. So beautiful, Sarah. I, too, could sit for hours, meditatively, watching sparkles off the water and listening to the “mast wind chimes”

    1. Thanks Dale ๐Ÿ™‚ I think that we all need to find space to contemplate. This morning I was drawn to the great outdoors yet again. Despite the background hint of Autumn in the air, the sun was quite hot on my face as I stood down at the shoreline, looking out at the sparkling sea. And when I got home, I did some gardening. My computer time has shrunk down temporarily but will increase again when things turn grey for weeks on end!


      1. I know what you mean. Writing has taken a back stage for me, much to my chagrin .
        Here, it is ridiculously hot and humid. Today’s humidex at 33!
        I’m off to sweat…. I mean work…

      2. I’ve been wondering about participating in National Novel Writing Month in November. It’s not something I’ve done before but, like a sick computer, I need a hard reboot to get me novel-writing again!
        Enjoy your sweat ๐Ÿ˜‰ Today is the first day for ages that my hair hasn’t frizzed due to humidity.


      3. Ha Ha! Poor Frizzy!
        I am going to attempt it as well – for the 3rd time – hopefully this time I do way better
