Contrast Haiku


Good luck, bad luck:
seals bobbing offshore –
the fisherman shrugs.

(Thanks to the women of One Deep Breath
for their continuing inspiration.
And to gulliver of Clip2Go
for this great photo of bobbing seals.)

Such sweet little faces!! Nice haiku -- I could totally visualize the fisherman shrugging too.

Lovely photo! I can see the fisherman shrugging too, seals are just part of life, whether they're good luck or bad

I like the haiku. I can hear the seals on the phone calling out the location of the fishing boats. :)

Fabulous haiku!

The contrast here is terrific. I've been one of the 'shruggers'. Grin. And one of the 'watchers'.

Oh, I can empathize with this.
