Hey folk.  As some of you know, I'm back at university studying urban design (the perfect course for any flaneur out there).  So - just for this year - I've swapped photographing little things like bees for learning how to draw cities with actual, ink-filled pens.


Somehow, while I've been away, this blog has become far more popular than I could ever have imagined.  So to say thanks for visiting and following Australian Haiku, here's one of my favourite bee photos from an earlier post.                               Cheers, Dalloway

  10. It's a very attractive blog site, Emma.

    hmmm... with the title 'Australian Haiku' and a listing at THF, I'm surprised that you're surprised. Could it be that some might expect a representative collection of haiku by Australian haiku writers under such a title, rather than the haiga of one person?

  13. Hi Lorin

    You are one of my favourite haiku poets. Im honoured to see you here.

    Ive thought of a million better names for this blog (mostly involving bees), but Im a little stuck with Australian Haiku now.

    Take care.

  16. __Ahhhhh pen and ink... that forgotten art of drafting; paper, T squares, 30/6o's and french curves! So real... feeling an idea and watching it come to life as you push that form through your pen... to the paper!
    __Glad to be able to say__ Hello Emma! _m

  19. Great photograph, and a haiku full of empathy. I used to have problems shrinking a photograph with embedded fonts. My idea: first shrink, then add.

    Best wishes
