Scifaiku is apparently now a recognised genre of poetry – Science Fiction haiku. I’ve heard that haiku is supposed to capture the essence of a particular moment in time, and so in some ways scifaiku breaks that tenet, as it is based purely on our imagination, not physical experience. I don’t know about you, but sometimes my imagination can seem more tangible than the ‘real’ world! Here are a few of my latest offerings.

Spin, metal bubble

Through infinity’s darkness

Fragile as scratched glass


Spin of laundrette wash

Reminds me of distant planets

Turning on new suns


When each star winks out

And before all is darkness

Touching, or too far?
