March 21st

A lone ship sails sad
on turquoise blue foamy waves,
its masts pierce grey clouds.

This haiku is so poignant. I love real ships, with sails full-bellied under a windswept sky and this haiku conjured up such a vivid image. But her use of sad and pierce led me to think that the ship maybe carried bad news or perhaps she was the last of her kind... Freya
