meadow race –
who will win,
the hare or the wind?
I’m delighted to have the above haiku read out on Pea TV as part of a Pea TV Moment. The haiku is read over a short nature video taken by myself.
You can watch the video (and perhaps make your own submission!) at the link below:

the riverbank blinks
its crocodile eyes
Happy to have the above haiku published in Season 3 Episode 2 of the Haiku Pea Podcast. It’s the first podcast of 2020 and the theme was “animals”.

a cow steps over
I tried to save the moth. He was latched onto the wall of my shower cubicle. It was about to get very wet in there. I tried to coax him onto my finger but he kept fluttering out of reach. When he finally trusted me he clung to my finger and wouldn’t let go.
I put him on the sink ledge. I didn’t see the spots of water already there. I tried to push him out, but the more I pushed the more he drowned.
When I fished him out his body was limp. I gave him my finger but it didn’t matter anymore. Perhaps it never had.
my garden full
of withered things
a motherless hedgehog’s
search for light…
first sparks of sunlight
a bright-eyed dolphin calf leaps
from water to sky

What’re you looking at? That’s what I wanted to say to the nosy human with the flashy-thing in his hand. He’s always up here in my face, waving that flashy-thing about. Can’t a yak get some peace? Or do I have to show him what my horns are for?

Okay, so these aren’t ducks. They’re geese (I think). But they are in a row, and they made several loops of the pond in that same order.

I found more photos y’all! For those of you who haven’t seen the first part, every year in Auckland we hold a lantern festival to celebrate the Chinese New Year. These are some of the many lanterns that light up the night.
