Unfinished/Finished Haiku

Saturday 16 January 2016

Last year at StAnza we invited people who had produced poems at the festival in response to events and festival prompts to send the finished poems to us. In the run up to this year’s festival, we’ll be posting some of these on the blog. First up is a haiku from Jamie Norman. This was in response to our Unfinished Haiku challenge. We scrambled a selection of Colin Will’s haiku and challenged people to either unscramble them or create their own haiku from the same words.

	The egret stands on water
	a stiff bridge
	into the air

		stiff egret fishes
		just one leg in the water
		the bridge stands on two
