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.

Haiku of the Week

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.

Haiku of the Week

Bad grammar, wrong words.

Well-thumbed pocket dictionary.

My first month abroad.

Abandoned teacups,

Half-read books with broken spines.

My cluttered bedroom.

Haiku of the Week

Lone man – endless reps.
Light glints on water coolers.
The gym at midnight.
