Sandgate Ginko: Lee-Anne Davie

 

                                                           a lone ibis fossicks
                                                           in the mangroves
                                                           nothing

                                                                          *

                                                           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!
