Cross Country How, a haiku by Robyn MacKinnon at

Cross Country How

written by: Robyn MacKinnon



I’d be lying if I said

Cross-country this time

simply spell out how



Illustration description: A stark, black and white image. A hilly landscape in front of a wide, open sky. The hills and the sky appear white, and yet shapes like bubbles – or stars – dot the open space above. A black road with a broken white line stretches from the bottom left corner into the distance of the upper right. Strangely, it seems to leave the ground part way across the image, stretching not the horizon, but into blank space. The words of the haiku occupy the upper centre of the page in black Prestige Elite Std Bold Slanted font. They cast a dark, sooty, particulated shadow on the flat, white sky, disrupting the words for the viewer.
