York, by haiku

Looking upwards, to station sign: YORK - and ornate top of iron column, and glass and iron roof

Slow sliding into
gentle curve of roof. Alight.
Four letters spell home.

‘York Station’ – an attempt at haiku. Shorter than my usual offerings.

Never written one before. Everyone should try it. If you’d like to ‘have a go at haiku’ there’s even a handy online tool to check the syllable count.

If you’re inspired by York, or have a particular memory of York, and succeed in writing a York haiku, it would be lovely if you felt like sharing it below, via the comments form. Or email it if you have a photo you’d like it to be attached to.
