Walking the Wetlands

Sunday was a glorious day for a ginko (haiku walk) and the Boondall Wetlands are a truly beautiful place to let yourself sink into a haiku headspace. I will be posting more about the ginko in the next few days, along with poems from the group, but for now, here’s a few poems composed while walking the wetlands.

river mud
I look into
my future


clouds pass
flashing the salt bush
back to red

off the track
a new track
of trampled vines


autumn wind
the kite I cannot see
