I am a Melbourne based poet who writes Modern English haiku, senryu, tanka, haiga and free verse. I am constantly inspired by nature and my inner west industrial landscape. I have been published in a few online and offline journals-- in Australia and overseas. Enjoy my poetry. I have recently taken up the art of linocut printing on which I've been creating haiga from my haiku poetry.

Submerging my heavily pregnant body in the warmth of the
Trademarkpink goggles enclosinggreen eyes.
Weightless I move slowly through the water,
Taking my baby for a swim – rocking side to side,
The silence under the water is sublime,
The silence lulls me into a multitude of future dreams,
How I will love you when you are born,
The things we will do together,
Oblivious of the vast changes in my life’s landscape ahead.
The end of each lap – rub my stomach in circular motions,
You have gone to sleep.
Heave myself from the pool- proud of my huge rounded “baby”
