Haiku Heroes

Haiku Heroes

National Poetry Day brought some hitherto untapped talent to the surface yesterday in our Haikommute contest. We were particularly impressed with Palfrey's bookishness:

Head stuck in a book

Stations pass by unheeded

Forgot my stop again

Highfield's clement weather induced absent mindedness:

Beautiful morning

The sun shines warm and brightly

Door keys left inside

Halcyon Days evocation of the daily grind:

Tickets please! the cry

Of the conductor is now

Ringing in my ears

And Tom Williams' hungry tummy:

Walking into work

Borough market looks tasty

A breakfast detour

Congratulations and thanks to everyone who pitched in. Meaghan deserves a special mention as she wrote an entire 11 verse ode to Shepherds Bush but no gong because she totally ignored the rules. Commendations too to the erudite Londonistas whose writing talents continue to surprise us but who are ineligible for competitions. Sorry guys.
