Thoughts and Reflection – Haiku/Tanka – July 20, 2015

out of Africa
swallows and desert winds
sweep Italian skies

sweep me off my feet
teach me a new summer song
early dawn thoughts
– reflections of passing dreams
tucked away in an album

long ago
on the sands of Massawa
we watched fishermen
sweep the Red Sea each night
filling their nets by morning
