desert stones
slowly their shadows
change sides

Another leading Australian haiku poet – Ron C. Moss – was one of the panelists for these awards, after his book “The Bone Carver” had received a Touchstone Award last year (just as it received an Honourable Mention in the Mildred Kanterman Book Award, as a Merit Book Award for 2015 – for books published in 2014 – through the Haiku Society of America).
