Poets Salon – Wild

It’s an honour to see my haiku and tanka featured in Poets Salon with the theme Wild, along with some great poets.

 

incoming tide
the eager thrust
of a seagull’s wings
Ο

slow river
daffodils nod
at a passing swan
Ο

sunset walk
the passion
of a rambling rose
Ο

yellow scorpion
a kestrel’s wings blister
in the heat
Ο

a blackbird
tucks in its shadow
autumn twilight
Ο

only we
can hear the wild music
of the sea
we lose ourselves
in a swirl of birds
Ο

lured by the scent
of wild garlic
deep in the woods
I am lost
but for the river’s song
Ο

white parasol opening wild morning glory
