under cypress leaves

under cypress leaves
soft breeze pushes riverward
– dancing points of light


beyond the river
city stains scarp-horizon-sky
– yellow fades to blue


wind-stuccoed water
under incandescent sun
– golden radiance


over golden sand
clear water rippling shoreward
bands of pollen grains


lone resting human
bicycle leans on park bench
tired eyes squint east


Matilda Bay sunrise

  1. These are just so wonderful. I find it hard enough to write one haiku let alone thread them into a series as you have done. A very special line is “wind-stuccoed water under incandescent sun…” Mmmm such gorgeous imagery!

    I like what I see so far!

  2. Thanks again Louise… I love haiku – they’re meditative for me, calming. They also make for great poetic discipline; one needs to really keep the imagery sharp and focused. (hmmm, sounds like a tip for visual structure, too ;^) )
