Lazy Poet’s Thursday Haiku





An old, fisherman’s table

Rusted now and all forlorn

‘Gainst the shimmering

Stealing my title from Gilly this morning, but I know she won’t mind.  I’m just sharing a last few soothing Algarve images before I return to the real world.  If you’ve never met Gilly, you’re in for a treat.  Go and say hello!


  1. Hello angel, you’ve made my day! Your blue sky, the incredible reflections from the marina path and your haiku! Then just when I think you’ve done you linked to me, said nice things that made me as pink as a brown G can be and sent lovely people to see me, thanks babe 🙂

    I love it when you write haiku, please keep at it and add some longer poetry, you can do it, your writing is fab. I took some poems to writing group last night. I think they’re all a bit samey , but they were well received. I recently went through my folders and I’ve got quite a collection.
    Had a day off today and been to Rosemoor with Sue, tomorrow I’m off to Craft for Crafters with Sylvie, so I’m way behind with blogging. I might catch up on Sunday. Love you lots darling x:-)x

    1. Rosemoor with Sue as in ‘our Sue’? What a treat 🙂 I shall look forward to the evidence. You’re very welcome, hon. I’d like to link more often but I get sidetracked and go off on a tangent 🙂 Have a lovely weekend!

  2. I think you should have put up a warning “Sunglasses required”. The first image is a dazzler! I have noticed how often your Algarve blue skies are completely devoid of clouds! We’ve had some gorgeous cornflower-blue summer skies this week, but always with clouds around. Never mind, it feels like spring already… 🙂

    1. I was just saying to Susan that we’ve had a bit of everything today but my connection was interrupted and now t’Internet’s playing silly b’s 🙂 🙂 You know how that feels! We went to Fountain’s Abbey under droopy skies 🙂 Snowdrops out though!

    1. We’ve been through grey skies and rain, back into sunshine and now… clouds 🙂 🙂 Did somebody mention changeable? We did have a lovely walk today but it wasn’t in the sunny bit!

  3. I love the openness of this, how the adjective becomes a noun and thereby floats away into the future. Beautifully written, Jo and thank you for sharing – the stillness of your haiku rests well with me. I’m now off to see your friend, Gilly!
