Haiku and senryu from Nathanael’s Rest

17 November 2009

in rainsmell air
bronzewing pigeons lowing
like feathered cows
 


daughter, writing
asks me how to spell a word
“start it off”, I say
fragrant humus
subtle spice of eucalypts
a forest’s perfume
 


quiet kookaburras
thirty seconds earlier
laughing at the sky
 


sun breaks from grey cloud
two green parrots glow in flight
and land, quietly
