Meandering old man
Watching the suits walk by
Not all who wander are lost

Shell Pocock
god what is that smell?
pizza boxes - six days old
bin night on Power Street

being up to date
lends itself to overload
brain goes back to bed

A Haiku about the Loss of an Identity Card

Oh Lord, where is it?
I know exactly who I am
but can I prove it?

Ian Row

two haiku remotely related to linear causality

a fine line
linear causality
you to me

a walk in the park
versus the shortest distance between two points
we'll get there

Ian Row

three haiku about a stolen car

in between showers
too early to be you-know-where
a car is stolen

a Japanese bomb
a gift from your grandfather
sans insurance

cops spot a Mazda
on Gertrude street, minutes away
Thoughtful, as thieves go

Ian Row

Scritti Politti

Scritti Politti
Gone are the old surprises
Past perfect

Spot Haiku 5

drop everything
haiku master is calling
too dumb to say no

Paul Rozario

Dysfunction is king
Verbal grenades exploding
Hand me my Uzi

Jenny Morris

what sort of weather
do you call this, sunshine boy?
arctic snow plumes

Cathy Dineen

My last day at work
before camping holiday...
intense then in tents

Chris Gill

you always do this!
when i'm out of the office
i can't check my mail

Weekend in Macedon: Part 3

A sleep in Sunday
Last night, a seamless segue

Ian Row

Weekend in Macedon: Part 2

Three of us
Lives unravel

There's much left to do
in this life, said the psychic
Lessons not learned

Giving it up
What a little tina can do
Not all in your head

The guest room
Glow-in-the-dark stars
Feels like home

Ian Row

Weekend in Macedon: Part 1

8 acres of wonderment

Crab apples, Lavender
and on the dome, Wisteria
Spring, in her own time

Five dams, two tanks
feed the orchard, the hothouse

"We have no neighbours,
just the national park, and
7 foot kangas"

Cab Music

Italian cabbie
Hooked on Classics, 1 and 2
Sooo nineteen eighty eight

This is my favourite
Track 5... the middle... the arias!
Here it comes

This is italian!
Verdi, Vivaldi, Puccini!
This, and spaghetti

chocolate's bad for you
nuts and seeds are better
restraint is king
i'm over you
but you're still under me
soft sport
not a word
what are the odds of an even chance?
your time starts now
