Haiku--By Ralph Stott--England

eco-bag in a tree
wind-flap sounds of a
prayer flag

winter weeds
in a herb garden
aromatic fingers

apple tree logs in a hearth
a song bird sings
from a chimney

day greets night
silhouetted poplar trees

Ralph Stott was born in Kent, England in 1957. He is married and has two daughters.  He studied design at the Medway College of Design in the mid-70's. Expressing ideas through the written/visual media, has always interested him. Ralph began to dedicate more time to poetry with The Writers and Poetry Alliance, in particular the 'Stylists' forum, over the last 3 years. He has self published one book called Legends For Lunchtime; a collection of short stories and has a second book pending called The Sounding.
