Loneliness

                                                          Gull Lake @ Everyday Amazing


blue waves
couldn't break ancient stones,
filled with sadness

~0~0~0

cries by seagulls 
ripple the serene lake,
empty of boats

~0~0~0

leave me here
on island stones by dawn:
hollowed tree

  2. I liked the metaphor you've used: Empty of boats.
    Solitude/loneliness enlightened.

  6. Lots of desperation and frustration in this, as well as loneliness. Proper haiku (I think!) - communicating feelings and atmosphere by description alone. The middle one stands out for me.

  21. Beautiful, Grace. There are many words here that pack a real punch of loneliness. On the other hand, they might just as easily speak of peace. And now that I'm thinking of that, I'm also thinking it really depends on the visitor's perspective, doesn't it?
