Very good switch of atmosphere for line three.
First the sad departure and gentle farewell and than the brutal
"The king is dead, long live the king" sort of thing.
Clever. As is your photograph, with the same half and half idea.

A beautiful photograph. I love the personificaton of the light, waves, and house itself, as if they were always there, a part of the eternal and only needed an observer for completion. Lovely haiku.

The yin and yang of it all. Beautiful photo, great haiku. Nice stuff!

Such a beautiful sunset, and a wonderful background for your haiku.
Inspired by your photo:

last daylight
sinking into sea
like a stone

Have a nice day, Boonie

Stepping out Sunday
though nation is mourning, we
put best foot forward...

Today before posting my daily haiku on Instagram I was shocked to learn of yet another terror attack in the capital city London, 7 slaughtered and 48 injured, this only days after the Manchester killings. At the very moment I was viewing this on-line a pigeon, in flight, slammed into my window causing me to feel a sudden fear, heightening the fear- feeling for those innocent people...

I was thinking what can I as one person do? 
My small act of posting one image on Instagram with the above haiku seemed so insignificant and I felt the message of "stepping out r…

Navigating Home

Well here I am again!  Wonder of wonders that I am even showing up at all in this little blog wilderness having uprooted my faithful old friend Finding my Bliss by way of messing up the template!  The one who safely sailed me through Bloglandia for all of those years was interfered with in an abrupt manner (see previous post).   I know it may sound silly but I feel like I am grieving for what was my sanctuary and residence, I am feeling kind of lost with nothing familiar to cling to, but alas I do have one place that is very much like home and so there I will share a little haiku with my friends...
By way of haiku navigate a place called home the 'heart' gathering...
On the subject of home and the insecurity of having no solid ground to tread on, that's where I am finding myself at present as I'm in the throws of purchasing a new home and going through a very sticky patch with the legalities of it all.  It's going at a snail's pace and I'm getting frustrated …
