Inspired by yesterday’s ‘poets on beauty’ post, I wrote this… may you all know beauty, wherever you are this Friday evening.

nature trail: a haiku sequence

To follow on from yesterday, here’s a selection of my own haiku from the Karawatha State Forest ginko…  the place, the poets and their poems continue to resonate…

nature trail
the song of crickets
becomes a stream

summer sky
seen through eucalypts
seen through

Karawatha CLK

ants
on the fallen eucalypt
all moving

leaves
among them
the lizard’s tail
