More Haiku from Issa’s Snail

Today I’m once again mirroring a post from kipple in order to sample some more of the great poets contributing to interactive renku site Issa’s Snail (see link to the right)

wind and wattle –
a season without
a name

~

four dolphins ride
the lip of the surf –
laughter

~

a squabble of rosellas
unzips
the clouds

~

a welcome mat –
the tabby unfolds
on a handkerchief of sun

Anne Elvey

 

swamp gums
in blossom
honeyeaters luncheon

~

Uluru –
in the distance there sits
a hippopotamus

~

old wooden bridge
waves of sand
…drifting mist

~

Southern Cross Station
two silver trains glide in
a blackbird flies out

One thought on “More Haiku from Issa’s Snail

  1. Absolutely beautiful. I wish I could do this. My haiku always sound trite…ha! But these are excellent and capture not only images but entire stories in the slice of a few words. Thanks for sharing. I’ll check out the site.
