Brisbane River Ginko II

Sunday is quickly rolling around… so before we hit the shores of Sandgate, here’s a handful of haiku from our Brisbane River Ginko from the ‘three Johns’ of the group.

                                                               ferry wake
                                                               the river
                                                               speaks up

                                                               cello lessons
                                                               under the paper-bark
                                                               days lengthen

                                                       John Wainwright

 
 
                               baby grasshopper on my page
                               this autumn morning
                               it will learn to fly

                               reading Issa
                               I kill my first moth

                               a row of ducks in the rain
                               even the hermit
                               must smile

                              Jonathan Hadwen

 
 
                                                             full moon
                                                             the river rises
                                                             with my anxiety

                                                             autumn river
                                                             a leaf takes
                                                             its final voyage

                                                     John Koenig

 

Cindy Keong has also posted two new haiku on her site and they are well worth the click! And while I am mentioning Cindy’s work, here’s a few photos of Sandgate for those who haven’t had the pleasure. Let’s hope the weather holds…

    there was an excellent band in england during the mid 80’s called the three johns, they stayed very underground coz of the size of the labels which signed them, enjoy:
