Rebecca’s Garden Ginko

Austin Texas USA
Wednesday, May 17

Gray moons, blue
biscuit— gravel
snaps below our feet

the smell of mint!
a cat leaps
over the path

goldfish in the pond…
five slow gulps
then it’s gone

a rainy spring—
mosquitoes enjoy
the buffet

five different mugs
on benches, on the ground—
the meeting of friends


Melanie Alberts


This walk took place in a residential garden in Austin, Texas, USA. The owner is a potter...hence the reference to the "different mugs" she offered us.

Here is a bit about myself:

My poems have been published in small literary journals over the past 20 years. I serve on the board of the Story Circle Network and have written a non-linear, literary memoir. I will soon be leading haiku walks on a regular basis at the retreat center where she works as Event Coordinator. I livee in Austin, Texas with my British husband Chris and
son.

Thanks! I look forward to reading ku from other hikes around the world.
