Diana Webb


warm afternoon
spiked with rosemary—
green dragonfly
  a spider's web
on the wrought iron gate—
autumn wind
winter footpath—
up to my eyes
in sunlight
  home from school
across the thistledown field—
ice cream van chimes
just the sound
of the old watermill—
winter jasmine

Diana Webb Diana Webb has published children's stories in the distant past and believes strongly in the link between recapturing a sense of childlike wonder and writing haiku. She has a special interest in haiku and well-being. Her work has appeared widely in British haiku magazines.
