My second published haiku. I admit I didn’t try too hard, but two years between the two was possibly a bit leisurely. I wasn’t entirely idle between the two things, as I had ten haibun and a magazine article published in that time. And, of course, several hundred blog posts.
It’s illustrated with a cup of tea because I don’t drink a lot of coffee. I could have used the word “tea” instead of “coffee” but it seems to be a better rhythm with coffee.
The teas are from the Middleport Pottery café in Stoke on Trent, where the Great Pottery Throwdown in filmed. Well, most of it. Some of the shots are from the Gladstone Pottery Museum which has more bottle kilns to show.
