September Challenge 3

This is a challenge for traditional haiku for the season 'spring'. You can use appropriate words other than 'spring' to denote the season. Consider using Australian references (plants, birds, activities etc). See below references to some indigenous seasonal patterns for Australia.

  1. spring sunshine
    Sturt Desert Pea flickers
    on the brick path

    half a moon
    silvering
    all the bluebells

    warm breeze
    bluebells have climbed
    up their greem stalks

    bird bath
    honeyeaters splash
    among quince petals

    spring collection
    abandoned mattresses
    heaved into the dump truck

    honeyeater
    yellow and black
    on the wattle branch

    the high sweet note
    of rosellas
    brief conversation

    two lorikeets
    making out on the batts

  5. red sand
    kangaroo prints

  6. on warm earth 
    the fledgeling magpie
    dozing 


    morning sunshine 
    a baby duckling stretches 
    one long leg


    drifting
    through a slant of sunshine
    pine pollen

  7. marshmallow landscape
    slowly melts
    black ice ....

  8. a fascinator...
    for a sleek hair cut
    the spring racing carnival

  9. my sun hat
    carried by the breeze
    a spring promenade

  10. a nest
    on the liquidamber
    spring's gift to my garden
