Fair Dinkum Haiku 054: Swirling.


Onto derelict plage.
Obscured by dense Swirling mist.
Waves slosh over rocks.

Hi Windsmoke,
I used to own a painting that had waves splashing over rocks, not rough, but just breaking.

I no longer have the painting, my niece loved it, and as she grew up, she continued to love it. When she moved into her own place, I gave it to her, and it now sits in her hallway.

Yes you have brought back memories with this one. :)

'Plage' is such a great word - I wish I knew what it meant!!! Happily, I know what 'slosh' means - and wonder why it's so underused!!!

G' Day MAGS: Pleasant memories i hope :-).

G' Day THE ELEPHANTS CHILD: Agreed :-).

G' Day RED: Plage is french literally: beach, strand hope that helps you :-).

Not sure about "slosh". Breaks into the atmosphere of a great Haiku.

River said...

Slosh is one of my favourite words.

Waves slosh over rocks.

For me that was a perfect image, on Pawleys Island, South Carolina they have jetties made of piles of rocks sticking out into the ocean. When I am able to sit down and relax I think about the water running (sloshing) over those rocks.

Great writing!

G' Day DAVE: That's a useful yarn, i'll keep a sharp eye on using words that don't break the atmosphere of a Haiku :-).

G' Day RIVER: Not one of my favourite words but to it seemed to fit in ok :-).

G' Day LITTLEJOHN: A most unusual word that's not used much if at all :-).

G' Day BEACH BUM: What you've described in your yarn sounds quite pleasant :-).

Friko said...

I know what plage is, why not beach? same one syllable word.

Slosh is strange too.

It's your haiku, why am I carping?

G' Day FRIKO: Carping on is good feedback and most welcome. Plage and slosh are unusual words sometimes i like to think outside the square :-).

G' Day CLOUDIA: Exactly! :-).

Waves and rocks
blue, red and black
a flight of a seagull
in sunset...

G' Day WIND: Bonza imagery :-).

G' Day LIFE RAMBLINGS: I'm glad you could hear the waves :-).
