snow shower

broken branches

reaching for her shawl

the long shadows

of the pines

year’s end

crossing the stone bridge

into shadow

snowfall

the dark mouths of seals

surfacing

winter fog

the old gate on

the top field

butterfly pupae

the bamboo forest

creaking

love note

another fold

in my origami

my son’s exams

the frog beneath his window

silent

fan palms

everyone cranes to see

the cassowary

first trace of dawn

a robin sings the night

away

midnight

even the wind whispers

tufts of fleece

a scattered cumulus

rosellas and wrens

chase and scatter –

prayer flags

onion field —

cutworms deepen

the farmer’s furrow

baseball season —

the grass on my lawn

grows another inch

blue fin tuna —

a rusting can returns

to the shore

peach blossoms —

the hearse heavier

by a petal

wind chimes –

just long enough

to name a tune

Carl Seguiban

over the fields

a full moon

stars the frost

after the ceremony

corellas flutter

on the flagpole

dark glasses –

grandpa’s first selfie

in the shop window –

the sweater she knitted

as a gift

Juliet Wilson

peeling boiled eggs

the cracked ceramic glaze

of nan’s serving plate

she brings me

a bag of broad beans

and one haiku

valentine’s day

at the zoo

visitors two by two

Tash Adams

________________________

raindrops cling

from the flying fox —

summer camp

raven’s caw

the misery she brings

into my life

Christmas lunch —

after the presents we continue

our argument

Myron Lysenko, Woodend, Victoria.

reaching for the dust

in a sunbeam

crawling infant

social media–

trying to recover

my deleted friends

standing on one leg

the gull stretches a wing

white sails

nature calls

on the long country road –

a kookaburra laughs

winter trees

the neighbour’s light

goes out

bamboo forest —

even the sun’s rays

cannot escape

end of season

the last mulberries

at the top of the tree
