Festival Haiku - Notting Hill Carnival - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Notting Hill Carnival
the old strive to
be young

Notting Hill Carnival
in a dance of flame
the young and old

Notting Hill Carnival
the old and young light up
the dance of flame

Notting Hill Carnival
the human physiques fired up
in a dance of flame

Notting Hill Carnival
in all shades the dancers
afired in spirit

Notting Hill Carnival
wanted a name change
Wonder Hill Carnival

Topic(s) of this poem: travel

Form: Haiku
