On Water xiv

rapid shifting shore

constantly inconsistent

respect without trust


n.b. Manningtree through a train window; a must-see stop I keep passing through.

  1. Respect without trust. Makes total sense! I like how calmly your poem expresses this uncalm landscape. The contrast works really well. It puts the focus on the landscape instead of the language.

    1. Good morning Angela! Hope all well across the German Ocean, as my old atlas labels the water that separates us. Thank you. Four lines on a haiku seems extravagant , but lovely to read! Much appreciated. 🙏
