scarlet pincushions
on the flowering gum –

water –

the pianola –

leaf litter –
red gum scribbles
an address

a splinter
in the page
of her prayer book

I have published a very small number of haiku and tanka:

and have participated in online renga/renku at:

Issa’s Snail

You might also like to read haiku at Kipple from Issa’s Snail participants. Ashley Capes is the generous editor of Kipple, the initiator and coordinator of Issa’s Snail and a fine poet in his own right.

up from the beach
I find on the windscreen wiper
a brown grasshopper
when I greet him
he flies away
