TYTO Wetlands Haiku

Almost two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of spending time with a handful of poets exploring the art of haiku in the immensely beautiful surrounds of Ingham’s TYTO Wetlands. Our ginko produced some fine poems, and Cindy, as always, took some incredible photos so that you can share in the beauty. I want to say a big thank you to all of the poets involved.

birds move
to the other side


june wind

of duck’s wings

yellow grass
stroked by the wind
butterflies dance


calling water
bubbles rise to
the surface of my heart

darken the sky
awake again
