meadow race –
who will win,
the hare or the wind?


I’m delighted to have the above haiku read out on Pea TV as part of a Pea TV Moment. The haiku is read over a short nature video taken by myself.

You can watch the video (and perhaps make your own submission!) at the link below:

Pea TV Moments: Meadow Race

Haibun: Moth

I tried to save the moth. He was latched onto the wall of my shower cubicle. It was about to get very wet in there. I tried to coax him onto my finger but he kept fluttering out of reach. When he finally trusted me he clung to my finger and wouldn’t let go.

I put him on the sink ledge. I didn’t see the spots of water already there. I tried to push him out, but the more I pushed the more he drowned.

When I fished him out his body was limp. I gave him my finger but it didn’t matter anymore. Perhaps it never had.
