Joanna Ashwell


the shift and slide
of rainfall in a puddle's
lost craters
we huddle closer---
cold tapping
at the door
Soldier's Buttons
my weary feet
shape-shifting ghosts
pursue my
rear-view mirror
his own star of fame
the dog's paw prints
sealed in cement

Joanna Ashwell lives and works in Barnard Castle, a market town in the North East of England. She enjoys walking in the area, being particularly close to the hills of the Pennine Way and many local woods.

She has read and written haiku for a number of years and is always looking to learn and discover new ways of writing or different styles of the written word. She also enjoys photography and collecting rocks.
