Wal-ku 11 (Fish & Ships – a riddle) by Vega



“The fish live in it?
And the ships sail upon it?
I think it is… ‘sea!’ “



Haiku: ‘Five’ by Graeme Sandford


‘Come in number five…

Your time is up!’ said the voice.

But, the ship sailed on.

‘You have to come in!

‘Pleaded the voice from the shore.

‘It is in the rules.’

The boat, a French one,

Continued on it’s voyage

Around the small lake.

‘Are you in trouble?

Boat five, I’m talking to you!’

Nothing, rien; then…

Under the sun’s glare,

And, much to our amazement,

The small French boat… cinq!
