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 senryu


 

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

the earth too
changes direction ...
lenten ash

lenten ash ...
already leaves
start to turn

lenten path ...
if the sun rises
it just rises

rolling in -
the homeric laughter
of clouds

night winds
shift the silence ...
crescent moon

dark night ...
she proposes he take
a flying leap
from 
 
dimly amorous
desolate lamps play flatly
fiendishly, clean clear
 
to 
 
power outage ...
moonlight sculpts with me
her curves
 
I uproot a plant
and now my universe
is all upside down
fading dreams ...
first light unzips
sky from sea
some days
yellow just gets
in the way
lingering war ...
she seals the letter
with x's
new moon ...
she reflects light
unadorned
flatulence ...
White Island too
lets off steam
stepping out
from under ANZUS ...
acid rain
rough weather ...
he sets his face
like flint
the sandals
I dare not untie ...
lenten vigil
a cicada
rattles in the web ...
autumn dusk
kissing booth -
an ancient frog
jumps the queue
sudden death ...
the moon overflows
shallow pools
cicadas --
summer climaxes
in chorus
