PHOTOS, HAIKU and WORDLESS WEDNESDAY



TYPE of MACKEREL SKY






A CREATIVE HARBOR


Welcome to our blog where we see life through the eyes of an artist's soul and how creativity can enhance the inner spirit. Grab a 'cuppa' and set a spell and relax and enjoy the creations.

Today we are linked with 52 Photos Project, Haiku Sensational and Watery Wednesday and Writer Weaves a Tale. (click their links to go there.) The photo above is of a Cape Ann sky which historically has been called a 'mackerel sky' and always meant a storm was coming.  Below are my haiku. Also Wordless Wednesday links.


HAIKU




I

mackerel sky now

warning sailors, storm a comin

fortitude alert.


II


life sends, dark clouds demands

fortitude to weather storms

bringing sunshine soon.



III


walk tall, stand strong, be

carefree and let the struggles

flow free with the time.

  19. This looks like a charming place to live. And I hope that this is your view every day. Do you try to photograph this scene often? A "mackeral" sky sounds like something fisher people would say fondly.
