8 HAIKU POSTCARDS FROM A TRIP TO SCOTLAND


1
spontaneous smiles,
border signpost welcomes us
to new scenery
2
near Ecclefechan
our boys collapse in giggles,
tickled by the name
3
empty sky except
cloud wisps, birds, aeroplane tails,
we pass Lockerbie
4
approaching Glasgow
we drift into the accent,
blind to our insults
5
M8 grey rain-spray
denies us countryside views
near Edinburgh
6
old town vantage point
looking down on Prince’s Street,
we feel history
7
posing at Mons Meg,
camera points, a split second,
tourist free background
8
leaving for home now,
looking through the back window,
our vanishing joy
