Lynne Rees on haiku and haibun - creative and critical
An evocative haiku that speaks volumes; worthy of the place it received in the ‘With Words Haiku competition’…
Thank you, Frank.
Congrats! I love the idea that it is me who decides whether the sea or the lyrical I is speaking to her. Best wishesRalf
Yes! That's absolutely what I wanted the reader to experience. Thanks so much for posting, Ralf.
Lovely comments on a superb haiku. I still get a kick out of reading Lynne's poem, even now, after many re-reads as judge.A cheque will be on its way, with a haiku journal notebook, soon! ;-)AlanArea 17With Words Online Haiku Competition Results.
All life on earth originated from the sea. We talk of mother earth, but I wonder if it should be mother ocean? Your link between the sound of the sea and your communication with your mother - on her birthday - has all sorts of resonances, for me. And it's a lovely haiku. Thank you and congratulations!
Thank you, Leigh.
Congratulations on the win Lynne, Matt
Thanks, Matt : )
