Venice Haiku

Venice Haiku

Mike Wilkin

The North East poet Mike Wilkin, previously published in the Bloodaxe collection, Ten North East Poets, is a regular visitor to Venice and over the years has penned these vivid haiku, seeing the watery city in a new light. The book is a distinctive A7 in size, with one haiku per page.

Aboard a leaping Vaporetto
The road to Venice
Splashes in our faces.

In the blazing squares of noon
Pigeons outrun an annoyance
Of bored bambini.
