thinking Queensland (while in California)

mango moon
don’t go to sleep
I’m not finished with you


I haven’t posted in a while and found this among my haiku sketchings. Just something hot and sticky while I watch the mountains turn white here in Northern California.

Haiku and a photo I love

A favourite photo and an unrelated haiku:  This little ‘Paper Daisy’ sits on Logan’s Ridge of Mt Barney.  I had to scramble out precariously to take the shot (like I didn’t enjoy doing that) professional nature photog style.  In the background are Mt Ernest and the ‘wedding cake’ shaped cliffs of Mt Lindsay on the QLD/NSW border.  I love living here.

November Night

.

November night old familiar friend

Let’s sit and be old friends again

.

Gaze at your stars till eyes grow weary

Sit and watch your thin clouds clearing

.

Again you’ve hung your humid coat on the hook of crescent moon

Still it hangs between intermittent soft breeze awakening, stirring

.

I enjoy our thoughts which pass unspoken of today, tomorrow, morning

Just to sit here, be here, breathe your soft night’s story

.

Unspoken air, warm yet cool, still yet moving slight

Breathe on me your quiet quilt of Queensland November night
