Night’s Cloak

Night’s cloak veils the land
I stop walking and await
Radiant moonlight

Last week the full moon was out over the beach and the wild ocean in Wales.  I went to a Haiku workshop, and this came out- if such things interest you, it is in the traditional 5-7-5 format (5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second and 5 in the third).

I just published a new novella- Painting Pretoria, encapsulating the beautiful and mysterious colors and moods of the ocean.


Mermaid song

You have a
of treasures
in your eyes.

Like the old
sailors cried
to the

of the great, wild sea

I say oh so
don’t sing
to me.

Heart Song

If my heart
could sing
it would sing
to you

of the floating
the blues
and greens
all lit with
yellow hues

your gaze
the sun
smiling in
my heart

light slants
on an ocean
of riches
I’d give
to you.

If your light
were dimmed
deep under
the sea

my heart
would sing

it would
sing you
to me.

Sea Dancer

Dancing dragonfly
in her green eyes
bare feet
in the cold
wild sea.

She is shell sister
sand stomper
child of the
dancing sea.

I went on a meditation retreat by the sea, and was inspired by the playful spirit of our retreat leader. She bravely waded in the cold Atlantic and walked barefoot in the sand. I love the sea, but Wales was too cold for me in March, so I kept my shoes on!
