Boat graveyard


Photography Credit:   Reena of Missing Moments


rusty boat  
bows down in silence,
dying fire

~0~0~

nestled in green field,
old brown boat heaves one last sigh:
unforgettable

~0~0~

boat graveyard,
filled with jade gold leaves,  
quiet sea

  4. Ah, but the storms she's known n the stories she could tell.
    Even the sea in quiet, pays homage.

  5. Yes--the Haiku capture the image: rust, silence, green, brown, graveyard, jade leaves. You make it feel temple like all-in-all: I found I could read all third lines and have a complete memorial poem. It works a little with the others as well.
