By the sea




lighthouse by the sea
stands silent, white sentinel  
braving the black tide   

~0~0

glass windows closing,   
as blue waves crash against rocks,  
unfinished painting 

~o~o

fisherman at dawn,  
scouting for fish and sea weeds,
candle-lit prayer

  6. "...sentinel . . . unfinished painting . . . candle-lit prayer . . . "
    It takes 3 haiku to bring a lighthouse to life. Very special.

  12. i love how your beginning and ending haiku lines form a circle of hope, peace and protection

    "lighthouse by the sea"
    "candle lit prayer"

    perfect interchangeable bookends...

  14. I've probably mentioned this before, but I too live by the sea in no. Mass, and I can immediately 'see' your haiku ...and they are something to see....

  15. Clever twist to the pounding waves that can bring benefit to those around them. If only we can carefully harness the strength of the waves! Great write Grace!

  24. I like the last one the best.. it took me two directions.. the candle-lit prayer for a good catch before he's off on the fishing journey.. or the candle-lit prayer from his family for his safe return from the unpredictable seas. Beautiful one, Grace.
