My friend Roseanne Dix and I came up with an idea of a less formal structure of Haiku in April 2003, which we called Eyeku. These were to be a short descriptive phrase or two, which would succinctly evoke a natural observation or feeling.

  1. What a delightful poetic expedition. The charm of the haiku’s simple format allows the mind to appreciate and interpret the content enhanced by your acute visual observations. Absolutely lovely!

    Thanks for sharing. Love what you are doing. And….very impressed with your watercolour White-eyes too. A very talented lady!

  3. Marvellous! I am having such a happy morning reading through your beautiful posts that I usually am too busy to pay proper attention too.
