Free Verse

Confidant

when the wind stops
I will hear the fish
speak to me again

they speak in soft voices
about the blood in the water
and make me see humans better

happy pet island—
a surfer on the shore
basking in the breeze

Breather for a being

Haiku Series

deep blue waters
lash the black rocks
a colour contrast

with wind brushed fur
he listens to the waves
a dog on the beach

rocks keep slipping
a passive sea accepts them
the dog looks on

summer says goodbye
blue skies give way to grey

autumn peeps in

Haiku

puppy on the shore
still waiting for skiff's return
from the stranger tides

Ailoaei Cristina, RO

 

Haiku

hot day—
only the sea ​​breeze caresses
the sad puppy
