A recent sunset at Ricketts Point. Plenty of water, yes the sun was setting, however there may have only been a slight sizzling at this time of the year. Generally the gulls behave as if they are in hot water so it didn’t take much imagination for this haiku.

  2. The golden reflection is gorgeous~~ I don’t like seagull much though. They smell? 😛 Denis, despite following your blog, I still haven’t figured out what haiku is. You refer to this a lot. What is a haiku?

    1. Thanks Joyce, our seagulls don’t smell they just make a lot of noise. Haiku is a special form of Japanese poetry. Just do a Wiki search and then search Basho, the most famous of historic Japanese haiku poets. I am sure you have walked in Basho’s footsteps somewhere. I did at Yamadera near Yamagata.
