International Haiku Day String

the last leaf falls
from the elm

making friends
with solitude

outside my window
a banksia full of lorikeets
home quarantine

International Haiku Day – Haiku String

Also to celebrate international Haiku day I read my two ‘personal best’ poems from 2019-20 at the Fringe Myrtle’s Haiku Hangout.

magpie feather
the charred trunk
of a ghost gum

Windfall #8

smoke haze
over the cathedral
our prayers for rain

Human Kindness #2.1

Fringe Myrtles International Haiku Day Haiku Hangout


And here’s a link to freer International Haiku Days, my reading at Chamber Poets Woodend on this day in 2019.
