cooling off


by the shore 

with a setting sun

sing to me

Another evening shot at Ricketts Point. The water can change colour before your eyes to all shades of gold at a certain period during some sunsets. A chorus of seagulls can be raucous especially if stale chips are involved however a single gull can produce melody.



pine for love

alone at sunset

oh what grief

I had to dig deep into my image files to find a stimulus for Ronovan’s haiku challenge this week. The challenge words ” Pine and Grief” . See all about this haiku poets weekly challenge at

I like the challenge of the original 2 words, no Thesaurus or tangent deviation for me. The image is another beautiful spring sunset at Ricketts Point. Who knows what that lone woman on the rocks was doing? Enjoying the sunset, pining for a lost love or maybe grieving over past times.
