when pumpkins prowl and black cats gleam


halloween haiku

Halloween Haiku dedicated to H.R.H. RC Cat

When black cats prowl and pumpkins gleam,
May luck be yours on Halloween.

art in the park


green grace

breathing space

pause between brick

two trees

a seat

simply to sit

brief respite

linger awhile

with your thoughts

they played

the aliens

beings of colour

they sprayed

the wall

a brighter place

smile awhile

suspend reality

accept the gift

take joy

walk away

believing it magic.

Street art park at St Peters end of Charles St, Erskineville (Sydney), NSW Australia.

only for sheep


Somewhere in Erskineville there’s a flock of colourful sheep but down towards St Peters 3 colourless creatures have turned up under the Coulson St railway bridge, and each day I pass they cause me to contemplate the difference between my existence and theirs.

I haiku’d these thoughts.

faux sheep flat city life
monochrome facsimiles
supplant the real ewe
