Bombora Haiku Meetings

Autumn/Winter meetings.

Bombora Haiku Group met in the Japanese gardens at Mt Coot-tha Botanical Gardens for their May meeting. What a treat! We all enjoyed ourselves tremendously and stayed afterwards for lunch at the Summit Restaurant. We immersed ourselves in the beauty of the Japanese gardens where everything was bright green. Misty light showers added to the atmosphere. We briefly inspected little waterfalls set amongst rocks and ferns and clipped shrubs as neat as round bald heads. Lastly, before retiring to eat, we viewed marvellous old bonsai, some of which were started back in the fifties. Continue reading “Bombora Haiku Meetings”

settles in every crevice
relentless drought

I’m proud of our members, three of whom have been writing haiku for only a year now. Well done Dawn, Melody, Yvonne, and Ulla, who’s been writing a little longer. Continue reading “Bombora Autumn Report”

Bombora Haiku Group

Tuesday 26th June

Bombora Haiku Group met for its June meeting last Tuesday with four members. Present were Melody O’Neil, Dawn Toomey, Yvonne Lockwood, and Giddy Nielsen-Sweep. Rhian Mac apologised and we missed her lively input and hope she will be back with us next month. Raelene Purtill was sadly also unable to attend due to a family bereavement.

Our subject for the month was ‘hot and cold.’ The subject seemed even more appropriate as the day was cold (for Queensland) and we sat around the wood stove in my lounge room.

We are open for new members, ready to welcome beginners to advanced. Anyone interested should email:  giddy22@outlook.com
