I wrote this haiku in honour of the volunteers from the RNLI who will go out in all weathers to rescue people from our seas, lakes, rivers and floods.
If you want to find out more about what they do, are interested in volunteering or wish to support them in other ways please visit their website here.
Wishing you all safe harbour,
with love from Xenia xxx
