5,7,5 – 365

30th November 2015

A haiku, sometimes two, and a diary entry, every day for a year. 


It’s Monday morning and there is little to cheer me up on the drive to the station. It’s dark this morning, the skies are heavy grey and it’s raining. As it begins to get a little lighter, the naked, art print trees stand out black against the sky, doing nothing to lift my mood. Once sat on the train I play around with the words for a haiku with no help from iOS 9, which offers up the wrong words as I type or mistakes an opening line for an attempted diary entry.


Against wet grey skies

Stark black and white photo trees

Darkening my mood




Grey Monday morning

iPad offers of diary

Helpful but soulless
