Haiku Around The Coast

Haiku Around The Coast


The sun sets on a

Calm Margate shoreline, wave soaked

Fresh with orchard scents


Cold windy cliff top

Dover's miserable grey seas

School-tied comradeship


Eastbourne sunshine coast

Where tennis and seagulls play

Pier and promenade


To Portsmouth history

And ships of old HMS

Victory and Mary Rose


Across Solent shores

An aging Bournemouth at rest

Sandy retirements


Lands End reached at last

Tourist trap desolate and

Wild, not much to sea


A Cornish journey

Of beaches, crags and pasties

But winter silence


Weston-Super-Mare

Tides out and mud clings to boots

Sunset fish n chips


Severn Bridge Crossing

Tidal bore carries language

English a Chymraeg


In Cardiff splendid

Bay life is relaxed araf

Mountains cry hiraeth


Poetic Mumbles

Dylan Thomas Swansea leaves

For Fern Hill once more


Aberystwyth dark

And gothic buildings glower

Tasting Irish sea


Holyhead at the

end of the line, a one horse

Town where the horse left


Liverpool humour

Decorates streets and history

While the music plays


Belfast - Titanic

Struggles, but at peace, and warm

Welcomes, so there are


At Giant's Causeway

Hexagon Geology

And mythology


O'er the water

To Fort William and the Glens

Lochs under dreich skies


John O'Groats windswept

Distant - End to End, but which

The start or finish?


Inverness where the

Loch contains the real secret

Monstrous tourist tales


Edinburgh - Highland

Gateway, cross the Firth of Forth

Ever painted bridge


Black and white city

Newcastle! Howay tha lads!

A sign of the Tyne


The Monkey Hangers

Braced against Hartlepool waves

In seaport spindrift


Scarborough cliff top

Sweeping bay panoramas

Yorkshire accent gulls


Cleethorpes hums with the

Smell of a neighbouring town

Fishy in Grimsby


Lights flash and bells ring

Arcades by drab drizzle beach

Great Yarmouth at play


Isle of Sheppey to

The Medway's historic towns

Margate -Thanet's end
