  2. i want to make a plug here for credibility; in this one i find the; no where in the haiku is mentioned what is really present on the habour, the word 'jewels' is misleading


    much love

  4. ...an yet, I saw the noon sun reflecting off each wave crest, each a jewel that drops away... to reflect again in another place.

  5. I see the blinking, too. Does the exact number belong to a saying I don't know?

    Best wishes

  7. Thanks all for your comments.

    Magyar, you're on the other side of the world but you always seem to see precisely what I see. I thank you.

    Thanks for dropping by RBroeker. No, the exact number isnt a saying in English.

  8. Hi Dalloway,

    You stand at high noon, and see the sun reflected on a thousand waves, each like a gem. Interestingly, the Japanese seldom made use of metaphors (or similes). Your haiku is very western, in this respect, but there's no reason why it shouldn't be. The haiku is renewed through poets like yourself, generation after generation.

  9. As are yours Patrick. To imagine we are forming part of that tradition is a heady thought.
