Haiku--By Ralph Stott--England

fading rainbow
into the sky
these paraquets

aroma of

into the wind
shopping bag
with salmon

a railway station
between fields
a crow looks both ways

persistent rain
still the drip-drip from my
peaked cap

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.


  1. Ralph,
    I liked these. The fourth one is especially cute and clever.
    Your friend,
    David Fox

  2. Loved the last two most particularly.

  3. Thank you both for your kind comments. Castle Cary in England's west-country, is just fields and a station, to the untrained eye! Ralph.
