Windmill~Haiku


lonely sails turning
rusted blades against blue sky
death of a windmill

Sad - there is something very evocative about these old waterpump windmills I think - they speak of the world that made them and has passed as well as themselves.

You have cleverly taken the opposite attributes......lonely, rusted and death of a windmill!! Well thought!!

Great take on the prompt. Windmill are a vanishing breed. Nice Haiku.

perhaps it is time for a renovation? :) new sails for the rusted ones?

I find it rather sad to watch the demise of anything...even windmills.

No Windmill Here!

There's an inherent sadness in dilapidated structures, and this poem captures that sense well.
