Hi Phill. Mmmm.. I'm thinking and re-reading. Was this written this evening? I get the distinct impression that it was. I love the last line and I don't know why. This is a lovely haiku, expressing that breath-taking moment when you look at the sky and just wonder at it. (Which is just what Haiku is about, I think.) I would put a lower case 'c' on the second line and a full stop at the end of that line, but it's your decision - personal preference!




Oops! I just looked again at the title. I need to get a lot better on titles! Brilliant metaphor.

Thanks for comments Joanie.

Yes the Haiku was written last night. Infact written isn't quite the right word, it just sort of came to me.

The title worked out quite perfectly I thought. To give the game away, the park I was walking in is Marble Hill Park in Twickenham.

I love this, particularly the last line - three words that for me convey a very powerful feeling. 'Conceded speckled sunlight' - superb!
