small stones of gratitude - day 16
My thanks today to the thrush who put on a show while bathing: the rippling water reflected on his proud spotted breast by the high noon sun.
(I'm giving away a book this month and it could be to YOU! How to get in the draw here.)

Her poetry has been published in New Zealand, Australia, India, Japan, England and America, as well as on-line.

Her other creative interests include photography and craft-making, which she often combines with her haiku and tanka to make haiga.
