Sandgate Ginko: Lee-Anne Davie


                                                           a lone ibis fossicks
                                                           in the mangroves


                                                           low tide sand flats
                                                           gulls and kites
                                                           share the breeze


                                                           bare feet
                                                           cool in shallow water
                                                           the last of autumn


                                                           the curl
                                                           of the blue iron roof
                                                           waves roll to the shore


                                                           late autumn breeze
                                                           too few
                                                           waffle cones

  4. i felt sorry for the lonely, out of luck ibis.

    and i like the parallel you drew between the corrugated iron and the little waves in the bay.

  5. These were just gorgeous…thanks!

    Beautiful images Leanne, I too love the ibis haiku even though I am not a fan of the ibis itself!
