Tan Renga Challenge – Harbour Moon

English: The Needles lighthouse Half of the se...harbour moon
the loneliness of fishermen
under lighthouse cliff

cast again, into the sea
always fishing, never caught

(c) Joe of FlatFrogHaiku/Gene Dupler


Tan Renga Challenge #29 from Carpe Diem. The wonderful first stanza was written and copyright by Joe of FlatFrogHaiku.

I was tempted to take this poem in so many directions. I finally settled on the one you see crafted the final two lines which appear in in green, above.

    I like the mystery of who is cast into the sea.

    There’s something poignant about the phrase “always fishing.” A lot of us are like that, I think, even though we have no net or rod in our hands. Still, we are looking for something in the depths of life…
