dust of snow
sparkle in moon light
falling stars

[…] “I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, “Go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” […] Lewis Caroll


Carpe Diem Haiku

End of Summer


end of summer day
spent at the beach rapt in
the roar of the waves

and the seagull filled sunset
I give thanks for this day of healing

Carpe Diem Haiku Prompt : Pleasure

For Inspirstion:

…] “There is pleasure in the pathless woods, there is rapture in the lonely shore, there is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not Man the less, but Nature more.” […] Lord Byron

Weekly Photo Challenge:Frame

Yes, I can’t believe the fit to this prompt either, lol! Who knew! This was hanging on a wall outside a gallery on board a cruise ship..inside they were auctioning pieces from Matisse and other masters. I stood well outside the doors on this one. It was fun to watch though, it’s nothing I would have ever done on dry land:) Cruises, a world of their own. It was my first.

Large Raindrops

large raindrops
splashing in puddles
clouds splatter

summer afternoon rains
rhythmic rain drops on my head –
memories from childhood
