Cloud heavy with rain
Warm torrent pours on me wet
Taste the water world

Yes, indeed. Well put, Faye. I guess that we are the envy of drought affected areas so may as well enjoy it all!

I was thinking that we could just about develop a conversation based on haikus?

The mangroves refresh
Tablelands' washoff floats by
Where are the mudcrabs?

Frangipanis bloom
Bouganvillea blossoms -
Butterflies arrive!


What a lovely picture you paint, Lee. It sounds as though you live in paradise!

Bloody Hide

by Judy
(FNQ)

A tick struck today
Not the usual dog , but me -
Engorged with MY blood

Great title...
by: Jill

Judy, that sounds like a horrid experience - but I just love your title.

I am wondering, though, if this "double meaning" is an Australian colloquialism? Does anyone out there know?

Low Isles Sunrise

Morning sun, green seas,
Five turtles calmly gliding.
And then! Small grey shark.

Icy tendrils creep -
casts a shadow on the deep.
Winter grips my heart.

road kill

sadness, death on the roads,
slow down, see life instead,
much better live than dead

On the beach I relax,
In the snow I shiver,
Can't you see the difference?
