Haiku 5

Standing on our front verandah, this scene unfolded before me:

Nightfall

Relieving form and disclosure

Harvesting memories of the day

About Don

I love life. Sometimes it makes sense, other times not. Discerning its underlying patterns and beauty always provides great reward and meaning and is a passion I ineptly follow. I feel deeply attached to nature and love the sea with its distinct moods and colour and find walking along its beaches wonderfully inspiring. Writing, sketching and photography is a sheer joy for me and the blog is one of the places I am able to express these pursuits.

    Beautiful! I love the line about harvesting memories of the day! Rejoicing in all the
    blessings that you’ve received thru the day, evaluating mistakes make, forgiving things against us and being sorry for what we’ve done. And making a mental note to try and change tomorrow. We should all harvest our memories at the end of the day!

    Thank you!

      What you say Kim is so profoundly relevant. That harvesting, and the marvellous way you describe it, so enriches and enhances our lives. So good to hear from you. thank you for your meaningful comment.

  6. Lovely. I sense gratitude for the day in your words, as if you are wrapping it up like something good, to pack into your store of memories and life’s lessons.
