rising sun -
just a sneak preview
of tomorrow

rock bound still
the liberator
of godly fire

haloed moon ...
my shadow turns in
on itself

venturing
from winter's dream -
a blue yawn

open eyes ...
the revelation
of shadows

empty path ...
first to be shed
are sandals

stalling
under the ice -
spring bulbs

a morepork
echoes its name ...
haloed moon

overwhelmed
by indifferent stars ...
this embrace ours

tear-filled eyes --
streaming overhead
star-filled night

getting by
without articles -
bare haiku

windy day -
stretching the truth
across clouds

moonless night
deepening streams
of gloom

sepia moon ...
cuttlefish ripple
through dreams

summer retreat ...
cicadas redefine
silence

summer breeze
cicadas blur the bounds
of silence

bumble bees
swoon from peonies -
valentine's day

five seven five
the via negativa
of English haiku

even
in this light ...
no more

ash clouds ...
penitents turn
back home

the faces
wincing in pain ...
also mine

parting clouds ...
a godwit vanishes
from view

the remains
of a godwit's flight ...
vapour trail

a morepork's cry
attached to nothing ...
starless night

rocks ooze
the lingering heat -
cicada chant

a fantail flits
through dusk's antiphons -
shrove tuesday

through the open door
of a tui's counterpoint
sound changes colour

open door
a tui's counterpoint
changes colour

her leitmotif
navigates the mists ...
hidden stream

silent night -
white stones reflect
the unnamed
