Bristol Frome

30/30 Bristol Frome

Hidden from all view,

ancient brick culverts guiding.

Secret river Frome.

This Haiku has special resonance for me, because it relates to some of my work which is to help the citizens of Bristol, and visitors, understand more about the hidden waterways beneath their feet.

How can they care about what they cannot see? I believe that by helping people connect with these hidden secrets, they will care more, and maybe, just maybe, change the way they interact with the water environment.

Use less water, waste less water, stop using toilets as waste bins, stop chucking household waste into the river, enjoy the abundant biodiversity water brings. Water is life.

I am Stephen. I live in Bristol, UK. I decided to shorten my this: Wildlife, haiku, travel, streetart, psychogeography and my family. Not necessarily in that order.

  1. My heart is simple. I love the planet we live on, it is truly awesome (a much overused word). It gives us everything we need and we have a duty to keep it that way.
