Haiku Horizons - ocean

Ocean. Haiku Horizons' prompt this week. Trying out a visual poem. I guess my effort cannot be called a haiku. Probably I was thinking about the Cutty Sark whiskey I drank before.

Pay attention. Observe closely. Relax. And write a small stone a day. (yeah, i know, this is the tail end of October)

We were at The Float@Marina Bay on the first day of the Lunar New Year to take in the sights and sounds of the River Hongbao 2017 event.

small stone 2017 - #2

Pay attention. Observe closely. Relax. And write a small stone a day. Even a heartbreaking one.
