sun shines weakly
horse chestnut leaves waggle
over a red bus

I wanted to write a London haiku!

Alan Summers said...

And you did! Love to see more. Please! ;-)

Can I suggest an edited version of the first line?

I think the last two lines are fantastic! A blaze of colour and sound!!!

what is a waggle?

Alan Summers said...

It's "chestnut leaves" waggle, and the definition of waggle (as a verb): waggle

Now it's a pity you can't drink waggle dance which is a bitter. ;-)

Thanks for your appreciation, Alan. And your emendation places a stronger emphasis on the funny 'waggling' of the leaves in the second line.
