Food bills, fuel bills -
It's not about the money
unless you have none

On an ATM

One more step

The trail continues -
each poem a chance meeting
with passing strangers

On the window of an empty shop

Guess what I've been doing today

In a dentist's chair
accoutrements of torture
give and relieve pain

Tucked in a Harrods magazine in a dentist's waiting room

Welcome to The Haiku Path

Inspired by the poet Basho I have decided to write haiku to leave scattered during my daily wanderings for people to find. Basho pinned his haiku to trees and doorways. I will carry a pad of Post-It notes and photograph each haiku as I leave it. The haiku will have this blog address and the Twitter hashtag #haikupath

If you feel like joining me, then leave your own haiku for people to enjoy. You're welcome to share your haiku on this blog in response to mine or on Twitter with #haikupath

And so The Haiku Path begins, somewhere at night on a London postbox.

The haiku path starts
Not with pavements or footsteps -
With scraps of paper

On a postbox
