Mission Beach Tour Diary #3: new haiku

Here’s the third and final installment of the Mission Beach Tour Diary, a selection of my own haiku from the ginko. I hope these continue to create a picture of just how magnificent and tranquil Mission Beach is…

low tide
a dog runs from
hand to stick


white sand
I drift along
with the butterfly


salt spray
the history of waves
against rock


nature reserve
stopping to notice
the weeds


choosing the same log     grasshopper and I
