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.


Memory’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! That’s a beautiful compliment. I think it’s perhaps a mistake to see darkness when we really mean that something touches a chord of sadness. It’s often just a question of acceptance 🙂
