ships sail to harbour
blown and tossed upon the sea
gulls perch on the quay

April is Poem-A-Day Month for many poets. We take on a challenge to write a poem each day in April and share it (or not) with the world on our blogs.

Haiku Heights supports P-A-D Month, and for you, the haiku lovers, and supporters of this meme, we will be offering a prompt every day in April.
