20 selected haiku

Judged by George Ttoouli and myself on Monday 10th October 2011, here are the 20 selected poems which will go into the postcard book:

Is Andrews

My child's careful sketch:

Me, with green felt tip pen hair

And "Mumy is kcinde"

Lyndi Smith

Love economy .

Lonely dawnlight turning off

The electric nights.


As my life drags on

colourful leaves pass by me

then I realise...


the wind and the rain

the pounding of the same beat

the finish, silence


stuck in the darkness

where there's no light to be found

so pull up your blinds

Julie Boden

Empty plastic cup

clip-clopping Coventry streets...

we dream of horses.

Kelly Barnacle

magnesium sun

a silhouetted steeple

whitewashed wall of sky

Laura Elliot

seven days of sun

surprise light crept low and warm

paves the winter's way

Joel Silber

encountering fire

invigorating Bonnets

sinus clearing sauce!

Angie Coles

Crumbs on the plum rug

Cup of tea spilled on the side


Mary Courtney


Daisies are dancing

Their arms of light expanding;

The icing on the hill.

Debs Ridgewell

No good at poems

writing haiku for a friend

Thats what I call love

the Friesen children:

A small shiny stone

sitting in a slow river.

Bubble bubble plop!

Susan Camps

Shop girl looks sullen

granny asks her about strawbs

turns out they're both sweet

Liz Hall

Spilt, oil on the road,

Split, seven rainbow colours,

The promise is true.

Louise van der Linden

sweet summer flower

how to capture sunny days?

bake it in a cake

Beth Rutland

Bitter, cloudy night

Hearsall Common with friends whilst

Shooting stars fly by

Helen Brown

In my window bobs

a hawthorn tree, red berries

call hungry blackbirds

Steve Urbanski

The city darkens

The voices of the pigeons

are faintly lighter

Hilkka Armston

Such a rainy day.

Bare branches up to the sky

Are covered in pearls

Thanks to everyone who participated and submitted haiku for the project!
