Two Poems in inScribe

 In Haiku, Poems

Inscribe: Journal of Creative Writing has published two of Andrew’s poems in its “Birds” issue (No. 5, 2023). Andrew’s poems are “Blessed”, about sparrows sandbathing on the banks of the Kamogawa in Kyoto, and “Zebra Finches, Wangkatjungka”. The latter poem is a set of eight haiku celebrating, as the title indicates, zebra finches in and around an aboriginal community in the north or Western Australia. The first and last haiku are:

Butterfly sprinkler—
beckoning by fluttering
a flock of finches.

The close of day—
only a peg and a finch
left on the line.
