NaPoWriMo 2017 Haiku 575 - Day Thirteen

Now settled in at my final stop in Japan - Fukuoka. Two weeks left of our time in Japan - 2.5 years in total. We have two short stays in Fukuoka city before we leave, but most of our time will be at this beautiful seaside location, doing some outdoor work, and hopefully chilling out a bit before our next mad adventure - a whirlwind trip through China. Anyway, four haiku today - 2 on the bus (4.5 hours) from Hiroshima to Fukuoka, and two on the beach this afternoon. We have a sea view from our bedroom - an inspiring place.


travelling down south

blossoms fading mile by mile

journey into spring


like mosquito swarm

blossom petals whirlwind down

satin ballet shoes


relentless roaring

surfer engulfed by turquoise

sea hawk circling


lime moss-like seaweed

like radioactive waste

splattered on the rocks
