Mountain and Mist | Haiku

Good morning folks,

From the highest peaks to the darkest hollow this morning with a couple of haiku…

Mountain

The pine tips whisper

Of white peak and mountain pass.

Mountain messengers.

Mist

Road dip and dank dell –

Harbours of mist and vapour,

Cringing from the dawn.

Things I’ve read this week…

Jennifer Wortman’s ‘Jumping the Shark‘, published this week in Okay Donkey Magazine is a sideways look at a marriage in trouble. Thoughtful and with wonderful humour throughout, I found it ultimately uplifting.

Scratch‘ by Tom Sheehan – just fabulous.

*Thanks for reading, folks. Recent short stories of mine include ‘Zenith‘ and ‘Besieged‘. Images courtesy of Pixnio and Pixabay.*

Not necessarily in that order.
