Journey... Home?


Today's haiku assignment from One Deep Breath is about the Journey. Perfect-- it catches me in the middle of perhaps the longest (literal) journey of my life-- well over 2800 miles and counting.

Today at the beach, I was thinking about the vertical displacement more than the horizontal distance and feeling just a little homesick ... so here's my haiku for this week:




six thousand feet down

our feet find a new ocean

unhomed... Atlantic.

Lovely haiku! I particularly like the 'unhomed'.

This was lovely and the weather in this picture captures the homesick thoughts of the poet :)

Hope you are having a lovely trip and not getting too wet... Wish you some sunshine before you head back home.

six thousand feet up
the air is thin
my breath is shallow
but my heart runs deep!
