I like the simplicity of haiku. The following were previously published in 2011 in Southlight 18, along with some of my photos.



Monreith Beach Haiku

Sculpted sand furrows

acres of beach ploughed by waves

hard beneath bare feet


Dragon’s tail imprints

shimmer in mirrored wet sand

scaly sand chevrons


Water from Clarksburn

carves across Monreith beach where

herring gulls gather.


Necklets of foam string

the long  neck of sandy beach

bathed in low sunlight

Now fulfilling my ten year old self's ambition to become a writer - it's taken many years and a long,long winding road to get here! After a lifetime spent teaching, making miniature ceramics, returning to teaching and training, I am now indulging in a lifelong ambition to write!
