Bishop’s Park haiku

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 A May river path
through Bishop’s Park enduring
South West Six music

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 Smoke drifts from benches
while kids throw stones to water
no thought of trouble

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Cantus Firmus, Haynes,
Morgan, Chamberlain, Davies
one ‘f’ in Fulham

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 Scattering lights
on the water as we pause
silent boatmen pass

‘The Enduring Melody’ is the title of a book by Michael Mayne. ‘Cantus Firmus’- meaning ‘fixed music’- is the title of a painting by Bridget Riley. Some things endure, whatever the division.

Editor Note: Our Football Poets on Facebook haiku of The Week~
Great ‘enduring’ images Alex. Keep on.

On a personal level, my childhood weekends were the Bridge one
Saturday and the Cottage the next.. We played football in Bishops Park as kids. One of the best walks to a game on the planet.
