Among the Birches

On soft summer days
We stroll upon man made paths
Through the cooling woods

Monday, June 29, 2009


Come little fishies
Come into this safe harbour
Swim among the rocks

Seals 9

Morning asana
My daily yoga practice
Keeps me slim and trim

The Plaza Steps

Concentric levels
At open amphitheater
For feet or for seats

Friday, June 26, 2009


Three little kittens
Perky and playful today
Are staring at me

Forest Walk

By the path ahead
Glorious stand of birches
Basks in the spotlight

Kite Surfer 2

Above the platform
If only for a moment
I’m one crazy bird

The Sand Spit

Gnarled seaweed wreckage
Strewn across barren beachhead
Cast off from the sea

Monday, June 22, 2009


Am I on a trip?
To trip the lights fantastic

Kowhai, Sophora

In humble monk’s caps
We intone our novenas
Cloistered together

Saturday, June 20, 2009


Raindrops on petals
Glide effortless to the ground
Nourish needy soil

Colours of the sea
Come in all shapes and sizes
A palette of food

Oyster Catcher 2

Bill, what’s for supper?
Not sure, Mabel, keep looking
What ever we find

Push and Puff

By foot or by wheels
We get where we are going
Across lonesome sands

Yellow Gerberas

Morning has broken
We rise to the occasion
Boldly face the sun

Little Quacker

I hear you clearly
And you have so much to say
In such a loud voice

Fish Market Quayside

Fish! Fish! Fish for sale
How ‘bout a nice pompano?
No? Then, cuttlefish?

Seals 6

So I drool a bit
And I squint and have fish breath
All part of my charm

A line in the sand
Period went for a walk
Fanciful writer

Thursday, June 11, 2009


Prolific blossoms
Gaily painted for display
Nature’s deft brush strokes

Open today’s page
Blessed are the springtime blooms
Gifts from Mother Earth

Kite Surfer 1

Attached by a thread
I have caught the gusting wind
Slide over the sea

Rural Scene

Sweet smell of heather
While we labour in the fields
This is the good life

Sand Artist

The Pharaoh was here
Headed to some pyramid
Walk, skip, hop and jump

Bright red in the rain
Morsels for traveling birds
Splotched table settings

What cha want to do?
I don’t know, how about you?
Race you to the pond

Dragon Boat Crew Warming Up

Steady rhythm, men
Stroke by stroke we cross the sands
Someone seen the boat?

Seals 3

Oh, Mr. DeMille
I’m ready for my close up
How about this pose?

Eddy in the pool
Ripples of a splashing coin
Toss another, wish

Monday, June 1, 2009


We, in morning sun
Open to reveal treasure
May you feast your eyes
