#Forty one

Another post and another 4 haiku!


The time has now past

For sentiment and reflection

We must push on.


The long dark night ends

The new dawn unfolds, quickly

I am still in bed


The mud brown river

Wends its way into the bay

Past the gallery


As twilight decends

The sun dips behind far hills

The buildings light up.


These last two are inspired by my surroundings in Brisbane. I’m often walking across the Victoria bridge at sunset. I also love the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA), which always inspires and lifts my spirits whenever I occasion to visit. It is situated adjacent to the Brisbane river and the William Jolly (Grey street) bridge. It (like the rest of the cultural precinct) was affected pretty badly by the floods earlier in the year. Thankfully no artwork was harmed in the making of that natural disaster!

      Thank you for reading! I’m glad you enjoy them! Somedays it is a challenge, coming up with something. Other days finding the time, and a computer is a challenge! I guess I shouldn’t plan any wilderness overnight treks!
