mother’s recipe

not quite 

the same…


tyre mart

after the service

I listen to his jargon



the way he tears down 

her cooking 



they synchronise their smile

the young couple


(Failed Haiku Vol 2 Issue 19, July 2017)


washing rice

the way you used to

I remember the smile 

that curved on your lips

when you called my name


following me

the creek in the bush

at my tired pause

it too becomes one 

with the trees
