sounding waves cresting in my mind
thunderous be these waters and moving tides
winds echo the whispers of each yesterday
beckon they to this restless heart
call they to this questing soul
flow, crest, bathe these wounds of time past
within this breath of ebb and flow be it shown
the flow of life and spirit eternal known.
Rose Marie Raccioppi
a haiku reflection
winds winds winds of change
in bondage to mill and sail
toil and spirit's call.
Regatta Beating to Windward, oil on canvas, 1828, Joseph Mallord William Turner, 1775-1851.
