Haiku ~ Sue Mill


sudden breeze  
the unruffled feathers  
of a plastic flamingo  
  passing clouds--
  convolvulus tendrils stretch
above the fence
spring rain  
ripples on the pond  
  freshening breeze
  the taste of salt
reflected sunset  
a pelican’s  
unhurried glide  

Sue Mill lives in Brisbane, Australia and prefers writing haiku to doing housework.

She has been writing haiku for about nine years but does not remember what sparked her interest. Sue has had work published in nine countries.

She also enjoys creating photo-haiku. Sue belongs to one haiku group, paperwasp, which meets monthly. She also participates in on-line discussion groups and has been co-mentor for the WHC Beginners Group since it started. She greatly appreciates the feedback from both the face-to-face meetings and the internet haiku community. She has been runner up in a couple of competitions, as well as achieving several Commended and Highly Commended awards.
