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.

Shared the wonders

Let my heart

the grass at Warburton watching the moon and stars with my 8 year old son,
moment was one of the best in 2012.
At the end
of our cycling journey – just us- watching the universe- in shared wonder.
