Morning after

a Highveld morning ~ and in each lingering drop ~ the storm is captured — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Inner storms

on the surface still ~ your words roll like crashing waves ~ breaking over me — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Tossed

we’re thrown together ~ in this teacup’s stormy seas ~ finding inner calm — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Strut

brace against the storms ~ against oceans and the wind ~ find the calm within — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Off course

on these stormy shores ~ in spray carried on the wind ~ something went astray — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

From my window: Hermanus, South Africa; July 2018

calm against the storm ~ stillness within the restless ~ silent moments shared — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Twister

in these whirlwind days ~ we negotiate blizzards ~ to find each other — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Aftermath

remnants of a storm ~ keep on swirling in my mind ~ then the calm sets in — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Restored

after the thunder ~ the sun breaking through the clouds ~ a butterfly lands — Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Musical storm

unravelling sounds ~ in the fragments of my mind ~ a voice-cloud gathers — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Interlude

two ships setting sail ~ facing their personal storms ~ in a shared harbour — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Courage

our hearts must be strong ~ if we choose to follow them ~ to weather the storms — Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Inside

his stillness hides storms ~ seas of swirling emotion ~ his inner being — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Beacon

in the still lighthouse ~ where I find strong protection ~ from a stormy night

The angler

still and focused ~ angler standing on the beach ~ around him a storm
