Nice my LADY OF BERKSHIRE. a very rewarding Haiku. I'm so wordy I fail miserably at such preciseness. It's such an interesting thought that goes against the way things are: Salty water on the move makes the reflections . . . but your poem challenges the natural course of things . . . you think like a poet!!!

Harbor's Basin should be a name of a place. A place that I would love to visit.

I see boat and port/dock lights reflecting and refracting across the swirling surfaces of the tidal basin...
such leads to dreaming and personal moments of person's own reflections.

oh my! subtle, sultry just at the point before sizzling ;) so many images and memories ... one in particular from a San Diego roof top restaurant, "Geoge's at the Cove" ...salt in the air ... harbor liners sailing .. so cool ... i was travel nursing and treating myself and a very good friend ... Pismo Beach ... i stayed several days in a second floor suite (900 sp. ft) ... gulls floated the air just 10 feet away from my little balcony perch .... what a wonderful haiku my friend ... it gifted me this morning ;) i sat in the amber for more than several deep breaths and sighs :)

Christine -
You got me to try it. Not so good - but.
Spending time at shore
chasing rainbows for evermore
beauty forever there.

the very essence of calmness disturbed by an unholy force just like a petal flown by gustly wind. I love this haiku.
