We visit your home,
silent sailors, whispering
of how you went down.

  1. Such a place must be quite haunting! An interesting photo and beautiful haiku!

  2. such a hallowed ground….nice tribute!

  3. a very solemn watery wed post….

  4. A most interesting sight. You did a great j ob on capturing so many details.

  5. Hey there! Great one – so sorry SHW wasn’t up at midnight! I didn’t sleep a wink the night before and I was so tired I completely forgot what day it was. I need to do more writing ahead of time and get things scheduled for times like that. It’s up now 🙂

  6. Another beautiful shot from your visit to the memorial. I have always wanted to travel to see this one because it is so unusual. The more I look at this capture, the more I seem to see. genie

  7. What a wonderful tribute to brave men.

  8. Mystic –

    Very powerful trifecta.


  9. That is lovely -yes haunting.

  10. Soon you have another memorial 9-11.

    Were you affected by the earthquake or are you far away?

  11. I wonder if anyone has held a seance there or if anyone has seen a ghost.
