Re: The Haiku Thread

What's with the potshots from the chasers? Giv'm another broadside, boys!

Sailors at the bar,
spinning yarns of sea and storm;
Some of which are true.

Trip to the chandlers,
shopping list went by the board;
kitty all gone now.

Shrouds, chainplates, stays, mast;
many things to check and fix.
Harken rich; you poor.

Compass spinning 'round,
to swing it forget you did.
Where the hell are we?

Loud shouts from the helm,
much merriment on the dock;
your crew ignores you.

Ok, one at a time then...

Boom crunch crash smash bash,
crack smack whack; blubb glubb gloop bloop!
Next time, use fenders.

Tanker dead ahead,
reciprocal course, ten knots.
Fog. No radar. Carp.

Half a ton of rice.
Breakfast, lunch, dinner and tea.
Purser; you are through.

Re: The Haiku Thread

Rowing dinghy to the shore,
Rowlock fails on top of crest,
Wet and sandy, sailors arrive.

The Sea became Free
Shooting Stars with Silver Spoon
Then I Awaken.

Nice one, Pelagic,
Shooting stars and silver sea,
Phosphor's glows slip astern.

Re: The Haiku Thread

Head hatch left ajar;
paper soaking, light kaputt.
Fix it, Goldfinger.

Saw those too three nights ago Pelagic!

Wind free on the beam
Speedily crossing albemarle
Crab pot stuck in skeg

Who has right of way?
Fisher, tug, sail or ferry?
Browning fifty wins.

Re: The Haiku Thread

No snoozing on watch!
Coffee, music and a pipe?
Your beard is on fire.
