Daisy haiku


the bees buzz buzily
I wonder if they’re making honey
for me

My niece has been reading my haiku and decided to have a crack at it herself.  She is 9 years old and lives in northern NSW.


up, take a breath and down again, kick!
gliding through the water

dragon-fly dances
the flowers giggle


Cool ku Daisy.


ginko – a haiku walk


walking in thongs
along the track
every stick slithers

For the months of October and November I’ve been writing haiku with a group of poets in different locations in Brisbane.  Here’s a few of mine and a link to some of the other ku by the group.

longevity bench
the old man
smokes a packet

white stains
by the ice cream stall
sacred ibis
