Southbank Ginko

Last Sunday, our haiku group descended on Brisbane’s iconic, Southbank Parklands for our weekly ginko (haiku walk). The Spring weather turned it on, and the park was teeming with wildlife of all varieties! Here’s a few poems from the group + a couple of my own:

pink ice cream
a baby sucks
its thumb

Tiggy Johnson

*

this green place
all my own
one willie wagtail

Rebekah Woodward

*

rubbish
in the lily pond
catfish eyes

Lyndon Norton

*

city beach
all the fathers running
like children

Graham Nunn

smoking
the tarot reader slips
out of character

Trish Reid

*

breeze ruffles
a seagull’s snowy chest
cloudless sky

Corrie MacDonald

*

hot sun
Pauls milk sign spoils
the view

Lee-Anne Davie

*

white stains
by the ice cream stall
sacred ibis

Andrew Phillips

*

waiting for you
the bouganvilla
pours out its song

Graham Nunn
