bright clouds or looming darkness

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 313 Dwindle&Ripple

dwindling twilight
ripple of receding waves
echoing of stars
the Milky Way is mirrored
in a sea of endless night

night sky, clouded moon, deserted shoreline

the moon’s light dwindles
as winds shepherd rain-filled clouds
rippling mirrored skies

far beneath the Milky Way
waves caress an empty shore

blades of grass emerge…nearby
violets unfold

freezing nights and gentle rain
the nurture of day’s sunlight

since before this world was born

Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #300 Grit&Quit

Pebbled Beach

simply walked away
from the troubles I had known
left them far behind
 
now I dream ‘neath summer clouds
counting pebbles on the shore
