Haiku/Senryu 2

Wooden retaining wall

Holds soil in

A spider web fills a knot hole

The sound of the wind

Echoes down the chimney

While I clean the stove

 Ant slowly crawls

Around a shopping centre food court table

People scurry by

 After rain

A sunny day

The whir of lawn mowers

 Overgrown nature strip

Zoom lens

Hidden wonders revealed

 In the bird bath

A lorikeet flaps

Droplets of rainbow

 A spring day

Succulent spikes redden

Illuminated by the sun

Steel bollards

Line up

In front of an open door

 Branch of dead gumnuts

Lies on the lawn

Before a line of newly planted trees




Wings flap

Water splashes

I stand still and watch

Sprinkler cascades water

On the lawn

A girl in a tutu

In the pub

Four beers

Two men

A newly laid Path

Winding through

Old gums

The ocean

A wooden pier

A heron flies
