Holiday Haiku


Bath'd in warm late rays
Boist'rous water slide descents
Book left on my lap

Blues du Businessman
Reminds me still of Tapie
Match-fixing crooner

Than all the Hiltons
His résidence secondaire
Must have had more bars

10% price hikes
Festival Interceltique
Celtitude in spades!

Charcoal glows white-ashed
Black lines seared on tender flesh
Bleu, washed down with red

"... sans issue", il chantait
Mais de son amour physique
L'issue est exquise

Adieu Minitel
Détrôné par Internet
3615 parti

(Written while on holiday in Brittany, August 2011)
