            [wpcf-summary-description] => This poem is highly commended in August challenge #1 on Young Poets Network (YPN) in 2017.

Judge Magnus Dixon commented, "The Haiku form is a sharply focused and detailed prism through which to glimpse Eilidh’s local edgelands.  The poem is beautifully precise and succinct, it focuses only on the ‘back gardens’— leaving the reader to imagine the streets and the industrial metal of the brewery.  With so few syllables, it is easy to, with one jarring word or off-kilter comma, curdle and unbalance the poem, however the poem is perfectly poised, balanced and weighted.

The haiku’s characteristic turn occurs on the poem’s final line ‘gorse and dragonflies’ but it is the last word which really is the poem’s beating heart— ‘dragonflies’ showing that there are brilliant flashes of beauty to be found in the most neglected of places."

Between back gardens
And a brewery there lies
