Morley College opened a Haiku competition (Japanese short piece of poetic writing). Marta submitted a few of her short poems, which we use both as a prompt and as a way to reflect and summarise something we got from a piece, or an r&d, as well as a few new poems, inspired by the idea of time, lockdown, and options and the specific form of Haiku's.


Her following Haiku, which is part of our Movement Diaries: the Lockdown Series, chapter I, was selected as a runner up:



in a loop,
time was caught as it happened
to linger on
