long lost friend
probably perfectly found
in another life

An RSVP haiku

I can’t come that day
(I’ll be searching for roadkill),
but my human can.

Terry the Thylacine
cough drop please [cough] [cough]
need a lot of marshmallow
to mend this brokenheart

running marathon
[cough] [cough]... oh please not again
should I stop running for this?

Need to go to the doctor
Hate those medicines

pussycat heaven
God's sun-filled backyard; inside,
shade and soft pillows

for Chris

Ian Row
Dead on the doorstep,
puss won't need breakfast today
or pats, ever.

Spot Haiku 16 - Part 2

the moon
in a puddle

Timothy K

Golden morning light
dew like diamonds falls from leaves
day washed clean by night.

Chris Gill

morning sky
in the puddles

Timothy K

roll out of bed
watch the colour purple
miss my mother

Spot Haiku 16 - Part 1

i. Ode to the Department of Transport

structures in ice
restructured -
wheels in motion

ii. Ode to Melbourne Winters

within dark bars -
candlelight and velvet
red wine conversations

iii. Ode to Ariel and Wandin Equestrian

"stasis in darkness"
horseriding at dawn
mid mountain clouds

is winter

rain on
leaves and soil
tin and tiles

Five haiku about Chaka Khan at Hamer Hall

for CK

Sizzling hotplate
Blue flame funk and buttered love
Chaka Khan live!

That voice
she hits notes that aren't in the book*
Pitch is the new black

Her hair and those hips
Does it matter they miss
her artistry?

True Chakaholics
earn their stripes, not flaunt backstage passes
won in some contest

Your song
My life's soundtrack

*quote from Arif Mardin

on the oval
rain brings puddles
brings ducks

dancer girl
harder being creative
when you're naked

set the clock forward
to keep the devil guessing
at the witching hour

come to me tonight
don't think i need to know why
but that you were right

In memory of Jeff Cahill, 1960-2008

Ian Row
Streaks across the sky
from where to where no-one knows
unless it hits you.

Law of the jungle

you can't live in this
village if you can't dance to
the beat of the drum

Ian Row

Law of the heart

love retreats
its sweet song softly silenced
a whisper goodbye

a vision of grace crashes
lost my rojo
