Inside sadness
denial is a sweet bird
truth waits.

Birthday Haiku (Liberty Remix)

New shoes white and sporty
now Noo Noo's newly forty
nimble, neat and naughty.

Sharkbite von Herringattack

Birthday Haiku (Dub Version)

out of sorts
out of body
out of time

Ian Row

Birthday Haiku (Acapella)

pressies, messages,
calls wishing love and life
did you feel that?

the coastal route to Gippsland

wafting through the corridor

Christmas Haiku [2007 Part 3]

post-Christmas sales
i find my shoes then lose you
harsh words spoken

Ian Row
so quiet
at your place; so hard
to fall asleep

rolling into you,
into the middle; time's up
10 y.o. mattress

Christmas Haiku [2007 Part 2]

Midst shopping frenzy
a simple miracle of love -
god as man on earth

Cathy Dineen

Deck the halls
With pain and mercy
Christmas turkey.

Karen McVean

What the world
Needs now is a bright star
Appearing soon.

Karen McVean

Put another
Present under the tree
For me

Karen McVean

Joy to all
May our egos and pricks
Get a conscience.

Karen McVean

a married friend
under the mistletoe
her lips part

Christmas Haiku [2007 Part 1]

oh shop til you drop
it's so easy to forget
the Christ Child was born

Leah Billeam

Hey, Christmas ears
Danny Krivit edits by Mr K.
Dance to the music

Karen McVean

Whoa, dancing ooh.
Sweet thing, dancing, dancing
Get down, yeah, yeah.

Karen McVean

Dashing through the crowd
in a one-eyed search for gifts
oh what fucking fun.

halfway up drainpipes
never mind the circulation
how stupid you look

Ian Row
treadmill virgin
moment of spasticity
which foot forward?

Ode to a Secondment

time to move on up
from family to new times
in a new time zone

A haiku about predictive function

predictive function
an 'offer' turns into 'needs',
'cake' becomes 'able'
