Sunday haiku


Spring an otter bright with sparkling water


Wind at the corners of the house

these days

you never meet my eyes


around his grave

native flowers

at home in clay



touching the moving river



crow in the birdbath splinters the sun


Some of these haiku have appeared in First Australian Haiku Anthology 2001  and A Hundred Gourds 2011

    1. The conditions under which Gert writes are cunningly engineered to make it impossible to procrastinate. That’s not to say it doesn’t happen after the first draft is done, though. We have a draft of a book that we don’t like much and we’ve taken about two years to get round to doing something about it.
