Andrew Hide: Haiku

Spring sun--  
tree tops water  
their roots church bells
  among gifts--
  a bride's hand
winter orchard--  
except for bird song in the bay
  tugging at its anchor--
  the sun
two snails--  
one homeless  

Andrew Hide lives in Cornwall, England with his wife and five daughters who along with the surrounding landscape which is a rugged peninsula in the south-west, a land where nature still seems to have the upper hand, are the inspiration for much of his poetry.

He writes: "In my mind I'm a story writer but in my heart I'm a poet. I like to experiment with writing, not just style but subject as well. My hope is that I will be able to inject the emotion and feeling to bring the written word to life as others have done."

His Poetry Homepage includes many types of poetry including a special section on Asian forms.
