High Tide

Carpe Diem Haiku Writing Techniques #24 movement (undou)

Today, I learned something about high tide. I always thought that the gravitational pull was between the ocean and the moon. Not so, it’s between the earth and the moon. But the attraction is such that when the earth moves, the shift in the ocean’s water is what amounts to high tide and low tide. How is that for movement?

caught in between
the moon’s passion for the earth
ocean at high tide

For Carpe Diem Haiku

Writer’s Quote Wednesday

“Writing a novel is like driving a car at night. You can see only as far as your headlights, but you can make the whole trip that way.”

—E.L. Doctorow

A short one this week. 🙂 I’m sure some of you can relate to this.

Happy Holidays.

 

Christmas

Taken tonight, Christmas Eve

here in the north east
it’s the night before Christmas
not a snow flake in sight

full moon in dance with the clouds
only show I’ve seen tonight

Merry Christmas to all. And to all who stopped by, said hello, left an impression and graced my writing with words of appreciation – I thank you!

These two are humongous digital moving billboards above time square. Way above the traffic of cars and people.

This is a display also below ground in Macy’s. Don’t remember what they are selling in this spot. All I saw was a set of 3 lips.

Empire State Building by night. Maybe on Christmas Day it will be red and green.
