cicada chorus -
summer overflows
with sounds of praise


 

bikini girls ...
so many butterflies
pressed into skin


 

summer romance
going up in flames -
paper roses


 

Ruaumoko -
an unborn child kicks
against shadows


 

serval, otter,
buffalo and emu -
summer rain


 

autumn shelter -
a morepork's call leads me
into the night


 

twilight -
a stream cascades
from view


 

autumn dawn ...
asian paper wasps swarm
over haiku


 

haigha
through the looking glass -
march hare


 

autumn horizon
hine-nui-te-po waits
gathering clouds


 

ripening winds ...
the bloom of summer
scatters to earth


 

drinking
from my reflection -
lenten fast


 

autumn shadows -
within my footprints
a robin's meal


 

fantasia ...
distant strains now
an apocalypse


 

summer coda ...
a single cicada
droning


 

breaking dawn -
the newspaper
lies unread


 

bare rooftop -
a blackbird proclaims
its secret


 

dusky sound -
all that remains
of the day


 

bleak winter -
yet light breaks through
from darkness


 

pilgrim friend
fading into mist -
then her song
