Haiku--By Ralph Stott--England

full of rain
paper umbrellas

empty glasses
a man signs
the air

mother's crystal glasses
holding her memory
in the light

or straight glass
a dimpled smile

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.
