Famous Reporter # 35
 

 

 

HAIKU

 

old town hall
silence glides over
the empty dance floor
 
marshmallows melt
over the campfire
ghost stories
 
 
motionless
in the river, and then
the log blinks

Martina Taeker

 

 
companion call
of mystery bird —
my squeaky pack
 
 
miles flow under the runner’s shadow
 

Andrew Reeves

 

 

morning frost -
a ball of tawny feathers
wtih two tails
 
 
backyard pool -
the ripple of shadows
under the eaves
 
 
mardi gras
a crested pigeon
fans its tail

           Quendryth Young

 

spring squall
bright ties snap
from dark suits

 

we shelter
beneath our sunhats
spring rain
 
          Jo McInerney

 

winter grass
the wheeling kestrel’s
russet back
 
midday hush
sound of the cow
breathing
 
bush track
my puppy runs towards
a lyre bird’s whistle
 
roosting doves
the goanna’s claws sunk
into the bark

Nathalie Buckland

 

full moon
the sideshow alley clowns
open-mouthed
 
polite ‘good mornings’
from a building crew
… autumn
 
rehab courtyard
a dry leaf shuffles
in circles

              Lorin Ford

 

 

    Easter Moon

easter moon
flowers dying on
a roadside cross
 
holiday cubby
kids nail boards
to a tree
 
alfresco
candlelight flickers
on fish
 
stained glass
sunlight through haloes
on the altar boy’s head
 
easter moon
the collection plate
overflows
 
carving easter lamb
the smell of incense
and rosemary
 
easter egg hunt
tents scattered
under the trees
 
monday
hot cross buns cold
in the garbage

                                               Quendryth Young
