__________________________

last day of winter
a cabbage moth lands
on a monarch

pmt
he butters my toast
cautiously

the quiet
of our baby’s breath
library noises

Jade Pisani. Woodend. Vic.

————————————

icy wind ‒
a fallen leaf changes
the pond

my first safari –
on a banyan tree
a lone bird

Samantha Sirimanne Hyde

————————————

river
at headwaters
– a babbling infant

Aparna  Pathak. India

————————————

tai chi demonstration
shadows become
one

pencilled
in the book margin
my haiku

Christmas countdown
the tic tic tic
of cicadas

Tash Adams – First

————————————

twilight traffic –
the moon finding its way
through clouds

Vandana Parashar. Sri-Ganganagar  India 

————————————

one umbrella
the only shade
on the beach

a winking light
atop the crane
first star

Jan Napier – Highly Commended

————————————

summer breeze
the taste of watermelon
on her lips

dune shadow
a foot
from the hot sand

Gary Colombo De Piazzi

————————————

tug of the tide
a goat’s foot vine
grips the dune

water pooling
into the knothole
another leaf falls

weathered stump
one toadstool piggybacks
another

cross-country run
an echidna snoozing
in a tree bole

Cynthia Rowe

————————————

across millennia
the urge to touch
cave art

after rain
the slow drip
of the canopy

here and there
through the forest
moon river

Simon Hanson

————————————

drifting over
the old cat’s grave
– fresh feathers

cloud of midges
just high enough
for my face

in the library
jumping for fiction
– a cricket

Duncan Richardson

————————————

sardine fishing
on rivers edge
a fence of poles

Gail Willems

————————————

watching
the watcher
magpie

Madhuri Pillai

————————————

our argument –
a superb blue wren
in the fennel

Myron Lysenko

————————————

bedside vigil –
dewdrops gather
on irises

forest hymn –
I pause the chainsaw
to hear the bees

white prairie –
wild horses
chasing their breaths

mid-winter nights –
the Arabica outscents
her no.5

Carl Seguiban. Canada

————————————

writers talking –
the ferris wheel
goes round

Matt Hetherington

————————————

a farmhand
uproots the last sod –
waning moon

poor signal
one by one, robins leave
the satelite dish

power outage –
the neighbouhood cicada
burst into song

Emmanuel Jessie Kalusian. Nigeria

————————————

chalk outline –
fading memory
of myself

Pat Geyer

————————————

winter morning –
the birds wade
through thick fog

Kumarendra Mallick.  Hyderabad, India

————————————

lunch on the river
three upturned
duck’s tails

bottle-brush trees
chinese lanterns adorn
the temple

Pop’s heart attack
the old gum tree
sways

Maureen Sexton
