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.

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

sinking into sea

Happy Haiku New Year

Bare winter branches bathed in mystical moonshine stirring some magic!

Hello and a Happy New Year to you and yours...

I feel like a stranger to this online space it being nearly two months since I last tapped the keys here. I've been living a kind of nomadic existence recently flitting between houses with the addition of my new little tin home that perches on a Welsh hillside overlooking the ocean. What with Christmas and New Year I have been sleeping in random beds! The acquisition of my tin home is something I have dreamed about for ages and now it has come to pass so I've been bathing in ocean magic....

Something else that has kept me creatively occupied lately is my regular postings on Instagram, I have taken to posting haiku and images there as a meditative practice which satisfies both my need to create and also to focus, I have set the intention to continue this practice for 2017 and also to research the subject, perhaps write about my findings here as I believe this art-…

Stepping out Sunday
