Tumultuous pass- When ten sails duelled tempest’s rage, Six sails ne’er returned. *** This time I challenged myself to fit a synecdoche into my haiku! Can you write a haiku with a synecdoche?

My weekend was full of fellowship- in just 2 days and Friday evening I enjoyed spending time with both of my martial arts clubs, had one of my longest friends over to stay, and have fully reflected on how fortunate I am to have such wonderful people in my life. Here’s to those who make me genuinely smile and light a beacon in my life. *** Fellowship The babble grows louder, more energetic.
