Ripples





We sail on ripples

Of a thought

In a quest to grab its shadow




This Haiku is shared with Haiku Heights - Ripple.

  1. Simple and power packed words.
    I hope the quest is successful.

  2. The last two lines were unexpected & excellent ~ If I may note though, haiku doesn't repeat or rhyme words (thought) ~ You can edit the last word to something like: In a quest to grab its tail (or shadow) ~ Hope you don't mind ~

  5. If I understood how to grasp one single ripple, or even the shadow of a ripple, I would be wise. Unfortunately...
