A year ago I posted Y is for Yorkshire in the first round of ABC and introduced you to haiku in Yorkshire dialect.
I now bring you the work of Susan Shand.
next doors do a moonlight flit
up Bingley 5-rise
roses spred all ovver t' walls
even on t' barges
dawn on t' Otley Chevin
747s off t't' sunshine
I have combined the first of these haiku with a photograph of Houses at bottom of Outcote Bank by Betty Longbottom, used here with permission, to create a haiga.
You can find a dialect haiga of my own on Winter Haiku 2008/09.
The original post can be found on Ackworth born, gone West.
