banksia blooming


seed pods open

chance of rebirth

cheerful sight


This old Coastal Banksia is still flowering and offering its seeds and nectar to the wider environment of Ricketts Point. Rainbow Lorikeets  and Wattle Birds were enjoying the nectar. Potential new Banksias are a possibility from this tree’s seed pods. They are potentially collected  and propagated for future re-planting along this coastal park. The Point  of Ricketts Point is in the mid background whilst the low hills in the far background are the Mornington Peninsula suburbs of Mount Eliza and Mornington directly South down Port Phillip Bay.

This is my contribution to RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge 102 Birth & Cheer,  an exciting HAIKU challenge  created weekly by Ronovan. To see many other haiku from internationally renowned poets visit
