Nature finds a way
through swathes of concrete jungle
Breathtaking vista

Ian Row

Through a grim terrain
a lush river valley winds
past a massive leaf

Chris Gill

new life thrusts
through old scars,  flow restores
Ganesh smiles

Dawn Mok

vein of mossy green
bitumen bifurcation
leaves a leaf a lone

Good days, bad days, always
Tomorrow will be better
Stop quoting Abba

it's none of my business but
she looks like pumpkin

Rising sun blinds
city bound train. There is no
escaping the day.

Bewildered Mother
Woe to you for harbouring
Woebegone children

Quartz Markets Haiku

Stocks won't go too far
Until that dang Brexit vote
After that, look out.

Incomplete haiku

Seafood Mee Goreng
Too hungry to think. Starving!
Incomplete haiku.

Umlaut in the sky
The accent's on the colour
The clouds sing their song

lingered too long or about
you, what's in your head

Inside it sounds like a brook

Sandwiched in between
Poppa and classroom teacher
Patient high school boy

Hard Rubbish Haiku

Hard waste collection
Under the cover of night
I lay out my shame

Celebrated, remembered
By Filipinos

Animated fluff.
Tumble, cuddle, scratch and bite.
Oh, my allergies

Ellen C McBarnette
The cresent moon
through the keyhole in the clouds

Upi, the lovely
"Little Baguio",  people say

How was St Kilda?
We never go anywhere!

Joseph's lost his head
Not a central character
Blink and you'll miss him
