Haiku by Judie Peet

ten white cockatoos  
pushing the storm clouds away  
  after the bushfire
  a line of ants carries seeds
  through the black dust
forty-four degrees  
even the marigolds  
hang their heads at my mother's funeral
  wearing her hat
  for courage
new tent  
autographed by  
the morning's first birds  

Judie Peet lives in Dubbo, Central Western New South Wales, Australia.

She's loved poetry all of her life, is obsessive about it, and enjoys reading and writing a range of different styles from traditional formal poetry to modern free verse.

She loves haiku and is fascinated by its economy and visual impact.

Judie believes that poetry allows one to communicate ideas and emotions that cannot be expressed in other ways.
