Writers-in-Residence Excerpts of Work

Kim Richardson - Poet

Beara Haiku
Moon over mountains
In the village street
a piebald horse

The fiddler's wife
watching his fingers move
knits him a scarf

On a moonlit road
inside this car her song beats
against the window

With a few notes
plucked from six taut strings
I cross the world

Circle of stones
I arrive in haste
leave slowly

At this ancient temple
I make my offering
flowers on stone

Kim Richardson
Uxbridge, United Kingdom

“Circle of Stones" and "The Fiddler's Wife" have been published in Blithe Spirit.
