Haiku of the Week

Politeness dictates

I drink this milky disgrace.

Tea at yours is grim.

Haiku of the Week

Muddy knees, lost trowels.

Months of tending the black earth.

Result: one tomato.

Vicars with guitars,

Endless icebreakers, Youth Clubs.

Local new-age church.

New highlighter set.

Overambitious scribbled schedule.

Constant stress headache.

Rolls of black binbags,

Goodbyes to unwanted gifts.

Clearing out cupboards.

Muffled announcements,

Long delays on cold platforms.

British train journeys.

Sand in sandwiches,

Windblasted rosy faces.

Dropped ice cream and wasps.

Tragic backstories,

Villains with British accents.

Superhero films.

Haiku of the Week

Crisp crumbs, sticky stains.

Old beer mats and claggy pipes.

My village’s pub.
