    Deeply atmospheric!


    autumn drizzle
    the sheen of boatlights
    on flattened dockwater

    Thank you ….. Casco Bay, Maine – a favorite place.

    A universal haiku…I live in Port Townsend, Washington–all the shipping traffic goes by here–though we have only a small harbor.

    Hi Alison, thanks for the comment. Harbors are all amazing, aren't they? Casco Bay in Maine was my inspiration.
