AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes

AUSTRALIA ~ The Antipodes
I love a sunburnt country / A land of sweeping plains / Of ragged mountain ranges / Of droughts and flooding rains / I love her far horizons / I love her jewel-sea / Her beauty and her terror / The wide brown land for me / ~ Dorothea Mackellar (1885-1968)

Haiku Challenge #23 ~ Joy of Giving (ABC, CDE, EFA)

Wandering Dromana beach on a cool summer's day

Just giving some time
Sharing experiences
Connection of souls

Connection of souls
Treasuring the joys and tears
As they walk the beach

As they walk the beach
Love smiles quietly round them
Just giving some time

You did a wonderful job on this haiku form. I wasn't familiar with this form, but I, too, succeeded ... and I loved it.

Grace said...

I like that walk..such a joy to spend time together ~

If I may suggest just a tweak to make the first verse 5-7-5:

Just giving some time
Sharing their experiences
Connection of souls

And that picture is lovely ~

Keep on writing ~

I love the theme "just giving time." It reminds me of what I do with the youth in the detention center. I just give them time to be in a safe space.
