Sandgate Ginko: Cindy Keong

On Sunday the QWC ginko group headed over to Sandgate, a sleepy little coastal town on the outskirts of Brisbane. And although we are yet to see much sun on either of our ginko, there were some superb haiku written. During the week I plan to feature poems from each of the group members, starting with Sandgate local, Cindy Keong.

                                                                  autumn haze
                                                                  cargo ships
                                                                  ghost the horizon


                                             kite surfers skip across cloudy skies


                                                                  one seagull
                                                                  finds company
                                                                  in the still water


                                                                  breaking waves
                                                                  my thoughts
                                                                  tumble over


Cindy is the feature poet at tomorrow night’s The Back Room event at Confit Bistro (4/9 Doggett St, Fortitude Valley) and will also debut an exhibition of her photography. If you are in Brisbane, come along… doors open at 6pm!
