Haiku inspired by a Brisbane River Ginko

22 Mar

Graham Nunn (Another Lost Shark) is conducting a series of ginko in Brisbane for enthusiasts of haiku.
Here is a series of haiku which originated in the walk by the river.

ferry wake
the river
speaks up

drenched in mist
the cormorant
preens
rain glistens
the concrete
succulents emerge 

koel returns
from Basho’s tomb
jacaranda blue
how exquisite
a poem
on a leaf
cello lessons
under the paper-bark
days lengthen
