painting the ship
begins again once the end
is reached

Yes, a job that vast would be a never-ending circle! Clever post and great image to go with it. :~)

What a great take on the prompt! And the bigger the ship, the bigger the circle, I guess!

"Will the circle be unbroken", I don't think so. A good one Mandy.

I loved this!
Having scraped a few hulls in my younger days, I concur with your assessment.

But there's the beer breaks in between, so that's always good.

Am unfamiliar with the prompt idea, but a piece of trivia to accompany the haiku: the Vincent Thomas Bridge, San Pedro/Long Beach is done the same way. Once the entire bridge is painted from one end to the other, the job is begun again from the beginning. Easier than putting a ship into drydock, or is that passe now?
