Haiku challenge: Vast & Clear

A trio of haiku inspired by Ronovan’s weekly word prompt


Vast ocean calling

clear skies, raucous gull-scattered

lead me in your wake.


Dark stars, cold vastness

clear sky with no light shining

swallowed by the night.


Memoryโ€™s vast hall

filled with sighs and soft weeping

regrets clear as day.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

    1. Thank you! Thatโ€™s a beautiful compliment. I think itโ€™s perhaps a mistake to see darkness when we really mean that something touches a chord of sadness. Itโ€™s often just a question of acceptance ๐Ÿ™‚
