  1. little baby blue
    provoking to write Haiku
    words are failing to

    xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

    just landed ashore
    where did mammy disappear
    alone to the wilds

  2. Bonus Themes

    #Air

    free and abundant
    breathing in and breathing out
    mind and soul refreshed

    #Fire

    angry flames lash out
    burning down the entirety
    never misuse it

  3. I will recover
    Strength lost from your passing
    Bounce back again

    Tell me your problems
    About things that make you fall
    Together we’ll stand

    Remember Woolworths
    What happened to them
    What happened to pick n mix

    Praising survivors
    We remember you
    We won’t be last forever

    Hemmed in by police
    Politicians refuse us
    We ride together

  4. some of my favourites:

    half a moon
    going nowhere
    until morning

    first leaf falls
    summer slips to autumn
    – one more liver spot

    at noon
    the sea mist clears
    a gift

    did you find me or
    I you – no matter now we
    keep each other still

    mini-ku (4, 3, 2)
    birthday candles
    make a wish
    again

    the day slips away
    where is gran’s knitting basket
    to comfort me now

    To those that sent me
    to stand in corners – face walls
    You never broke me!

    today I cannot find
    the corners of my sky
    puzzle pieces lost

    I rest against stone
    fields laced with dandelion clocks
    seas time deep – wind moaned

    I can write haiku
    You can write haiku
    We can write haiku

    mountain pose
    silent conversation
    with a cloud

    absent – without
    the time we thought we had
    a last petal falls

    going through her things
    she died before Christmas – there
    our unopened gifts
