Sydney Bondi Beach

We could go surfing
Or we could just walk the beach
Race you to the curl

Here in the canyon
I breathe in autumn colors
While angels hover

Kangaroo and Joey

How sweet is the grass
Food for us all, ev'ryone
Not your taste? Sorry

First Church

Paperweight for kids
Used to keep the land in place
Want one for your desk?

Spring 19

Don’t turn away now
I would like conversation
Morning dew forbids

Down at the Quay

In sepia mist
Masts are gaunt, quite skeletal
In quiet colors

Yosemite 2

I splash my bare feet
In the cold mountain water
Chills me to the bone

Noisy Miner

With bold eye you spy
The wriggling worm in the grass?
Or a lady friend

Baldwin Street

Race you up the hill?
No? Let’s walk up instead
. No!
Hmmm, let's take the car

Cherry blossom time
Gives the sweet smell of success
Roots firmly in earth

Twelve Apostles

I stand on high cliff
Headland crumbles to the sea
Here for a moment

Mottled granite wall
Intrusioned and oxide stained
Geologic awe

Friday, April 18, 2008


We three kings have come
To offer our gifts of fish
Would you expect else?

St Kilda Beach

Shark mouth swallows waves
Idle imagination
Haiku is like that

Among Daffodils

One like another As far as the eyes can see We are family

Porpoise with purpose
Swim through the clear blue waters
Shall we join them? YES!

Monday, April 14, 2008


We will cross this stream
To follow the valley trail
What’s around the bend?

Unwritten bargain
Give me your photography
I will give haiku

Loch Ard Gorge

Crisp edge of the land
Meets the movable seashore
You and I, the same

Wednesday, April 9, 2008


We come riding noise
To natural cathedral
Then walk in silence

Tuesday, April 8, 2008


Did you bring me some food?
Don’t have all day

The Rocks

Devonian beach
Life is about to emerge
Amphibians first

Spring 17

In verdant meadow
We stroll through starry blossoms
Hear the robin’s call

Surfs Up

I walk on water
Step by step for many leagues
Oops, here’s a challenge

If you go into the woods
Bring your sense of play

Aquamarine lake
You feed all our thirsty roots
That we might have life

Spring 15

Vying for my glance
Daffodils dance in the wind
I watch in wonder
