Poetry Friday: Welcome to 2020

Welcome to the new year. Thank you Carol at Carol’s Corner for hosting our community. I am so thankful for this community. Especially today.  Especially with the world events.  I seek solace in this community.

Hubs and I were at the coast overnight. So thankful for that because last night’s news was a huge downer and frightening.  

morning brings
prayers for the world
grey shadows

ocean waves
ravaging the wreck
end is near

In the 70’s, the wreck of the Peter Iredale was much larger and taller.  It ran aground in 1906.  Today, besides the world news, I was quite surprise at how much it has diminished. I really must find the photos I have that show how it once was.

On a much happier note, I received my first New Year’s postcard and it was a delight.  Thank you, Irene.  I had to reprint my postcards as the first batch were not of quality.

I wold love to be a part of an online poetry group.  PM me if you are interested.

    loved your haikus and the photos as well. Thanks for organizing the postcard exchange. I’m hoping to get mine off this week.

    Let’s hope for some BLUE waves that will carry away the wreckage of these past few years!!

    Thank you, Jone, for organizing the Poetry Postcard event once again. I also received my first one yesterday from Kimberly H. The second haiku had me researching the shipwreck. It is fascinating to have a wreck still visible after all those years. The last line holds the key to what is coming. Happy New Year.

    Your first haiku is lovely. More and more it seems to me that life is all about the combination of the light and the dark–the solace and the shadows.
