Julie Thorndyke


evening -
through the traffic haze
a darting sparrow


koalas grunting -
the sound of evening joggers
on the road

  hair falls
as she bends to tie a shoe
              ...the willow


red apples
in the afternoon light
....fading footsteps

morning sun
through parted curtains -
my eyelids!


Julie Thorndyke began writing haiku after attending a FAW workshop given by Yellow Moon editor Beverley George. She has a day job as a librarian but would rather be walking on the beach and writing poetry.
