Words ignite desires
Passions flow beneath covers
Pleasures of reading

Reading Haiku

A Book Tanka

Hushed voices murmur
Ideas shaping rhythm
Thoughts dipped into ink
Words sewn tightly into leaves
Pages bound so all can share

A Book Tanka

Flicker Alley

Cecil Court in London has a long and illustrious history. It was once home to the early film industry – nicknamed Flicker Alley. Providing shop front premises for many important early film pioneers. Today it is home to mostly Antiquarian Booksellers.

I took this photo when I visited Cecil Court on 09 May 2014.

This is my Haiku homage to this magical place…

There once was silence
Nitrate flickered to times changed
Lights dimmed, words remain
