We'll be on Good Morning Ulster in the morning around 8.15, with one of the winners of Translink's Life's Better Haiku Competition. Four winners, along with six commended entries, will be announced by Translink tomorrow. Thanks to everyone who entered, and keep an eye out for some great haiku hitting bus and train stations shortly.
