Newlyn Haiku

January 25, 2010

Winter

Hymns rouse the chapels -

forts of faith.  Outside, kids text.

I-pods fake icons.

Spring

Buccas in snug pubs:

Sea is a fickle lover.

Beer glasses sweat tears.

Summer

Gulls bovver the boats.

Waters crest in champagne foam -

toast fishermen’s haul.

Autumn

Spectral waves at night.

White cottages petrify

tidemarks of lost times.
