Sometimes letters come,
drenched in salt spray from the sea—
the same old stories.

  1. the old stories are often the most loved! I love the blue in the restaurant’s sign.

  2. your haiku is stirrng and i luv the painting you chose to accompany it; have a nice sunday

    much love…

  3. Curiously this reminded me about the introduction of cheap postage in the UK in 1840. Prior to that the recipient would pay for the letter when delivered. The story is that people used to refuse the letter knowing that it was from a relative to say that all was well. When Rowland Hill (I think) offered to pay for the latter of a woman who refused it. He found that it was blank inside. So long as she still got letters she knew her son was OK that was their agreement; the same old story in fact!

  4. This brought to mind a few memories of a long separation punctuated by letters that came and went across the Atlantic in the days before the internet and instant communication. Thank goodness the ‘same old story’ had a happy ending!!

  5. all those years i lived on the QEII. trust me there is nothing like the salty sea breezes or love letters pushed under the cabin door.
    thanks for stirring some very cherishable and salty stories.

  9. Isn’t it disappointing when the same stories come back..although depending on the sailor they can be quite fun! (ps I am enjoying where these prompts sail me)
