City Botanic Gardens Ginko

Here’s last Sunday’s haiku harvest from our ginko around Brisbane’s City Botanic Gardens. It was a rolling Spring day where the only colour that remained certain in the sky was the purple of Jacaranda blossoms.

on the path
crow throws a sideways look
I know! I know!

photographing flowers
the eye of a curlew
fills the lens

fig tree
a quick root
against the wall

family picnic
a jacaranda
provides the blanket

mangrove forest
passing bikes tremble
the bridge

(Lyne Marshall)


river surges
twenty masts
sway in agreement

(Corrie Macdonald)


in the flower garden all the names I never learned
