It Is Almost That by Lotte L.S. | Poetry Foundation

What I fear most
is becoming “a poet”…
Locking myself in the room
gazing at the sea
and forgetting…

Strawberries and Cream | Burn The Water


We move into the spring bank holiday with sunshine. The smell of barbecue drifts garden to garden. I hang the washing out even though I know that my shirts will take on the smell of grilled chicken, beef burgers, smoke. A child is playing ‘Twinkle Twinkle Little Star’ on a violin. Pushing its weave into my back our rattan chair creaks.

the painted lady
on my arm flexes its wings
strawberries and cream

The Onion Field – a haibun by Dimitar Anakiev | Icebox

How past repair
this aging onion field…
how the umbels
still hold on for bees
and swooping swallows!
