David Serjeant


sound of the thaw—
in her womb
our baby moving
  dusting the corners...

on a spider husk
school fair—
a trace of smoke
on the fire engine
  bombing ranges
over the cliff edge
a white butterfly
night frost...
aircraft strobe lights
amongst the stars

David Serjeant David was born in the autumn of 1971 and lives with his young family in Derbyshire, UK, where he works as a local government officer. He has been writing haiku for a number of years and has had work published in journals on either side of the Atlantic. He has a number of haiku related projects in mind which may or may not come to fruition. David doesn't really have any spare time, but when he does, he enjoys world cinema (he is a big Werner Herzog fan) and exploring the countryside near his home. He maintains his own website at
