From tiny beginnings to oceans I discovered the world in words

The Last September Smiles.




setting sun

fires the sky.

I breathe cooler air.





Feathered topped

pampas grass

reaches high.


Vapour trails

spear across

afternoon sky.


Drawing kisses.



Haibun (prose poem followed by a haiku).


I watched the sun go to bed tonight,

in her golden nightdress,

slipping down beneath

the earth’s patchwork quilt.

I knew, for a while,

that she was still awake,

the clouds and sky were shades

of salmon pink and brilliant orange.

When she slowly drifted off to sleep,

trees were stencilled in black

against the fading sky.


Somewhere dawn breaks-

but for us in darkness, it’s

time to say goodnight.
