3 – 20 – featured haiku writer

surf pounds rocky shore
tower of light guides sailors
safe harbour refuge

Here is the second haiku from our featured haiku writer, Ken Gierke. He tells me that he is inspired by the poets he follows on WordPress. You can read more of his work at Rivrvlogr

This haiku stood out to me from the first reading; the contrast between the shore and the safe harbour. I also liked his implicit mention of the lighthouse.
This haiku is part of my OCEAN series.

    I found some historic lighthouses, one actually was a a lighthouse station in Wisconsin on Lake Michigan last year.

    I think most lighthouses are now automated. I believe being a lighthouse keeper was a tremendous responsibility which seems to have some romance attached to it. Nice verse. Reminded me of my explorations in Wisconsin.
