From the Land of the Long White Cloud

3 delicious kiwifruits for Christmas courtesy of Owen Bullock co-editor with Patricia Prime of the twice yearly haiku and tanka journal Kokako published in New Zealand:

from Bernard Gadd, Papatoetoe, NZ :

you feed the horses
admire long delicate lips
your back is warm
I slip an apple slice
between your teeth

from Suzanne Vaassen, Waiheke Island, NZ:

all autumn
two rabbits fatten in the loft
at christmas
ten children
gape at father's killing knife

from Owen Bullock, Western Bay of Plenty, NZ :

a seagull
is here, its sound
is there

Wonderful. Even the place names are poems! P-i-R
