Haiku by Glen Wilson

the dorrbell chimes,
all the rooms
stand at attention

A balloon inflates,
your breath trapped
at a party

a telephone rings,
the universe waits
on the other line

a whisper nestles
in the sea shell
of your ear

hope and fear spin
in the pointer
of the weighing scales

Glen Wilson has been published in Iota and The Interpreters House amongst others.  In 2014, he won the Poetry Space competition and was shortlisted for the Wasafiri New Writing Prize.
