As the sun goes down, sadness as the colors fade is replaced by gratitude for the tranquility of the Barbados Ocean at night.

Well, I think this is the last of “The Barbados Ocean (Haiku)” series – unless I wake up suddenly in the night with another one in my head!

Over the next couple of days, I’ll be finishing the “After the Rain (Haiku)” series.

I’ve really been enjoying the Haiku (and other forms of poetry) that some of you are writing.

As always, a huge thank you for all of your encouraging feebback!

Sun slowly sinking

Brightness fading to grey black

Light now reflecting
