RAFW Review in Haiku: Romance Was Born

We celebrate the start of RAFW using ancient Japanese poetry.

majestic old room

surrounding books, daylight lit

the show started late

an endless front row

I wanted to sing along

'Goodbye Horses'

models looked like

Princess Leia on acid

their shoes, they were flat

prints, lace and colour

it was all in the detail

Cate Blanchett was there

over the top theatre

the clothes, the make-up, the hair

not good for the beach

each look dramatic

some we found puzzling

but liked all the same

voices softly sang

'Never Ending Story'

there was loud clapping
