spiral trio

lighthouse dance

spiral up twist down

shout success

seagull shouts

cloud spirals and twists

twilight act

maori art

twist and spiral form

colour shouts

The first Haibun is the Port fairy Lighthouse, unfortunately locked up to prevent the latest dance craze.

Secondly another beautiful sunset over Port Phillip Bay from Ricketts Point with a lone seagull adding its voice to natures art.

Third is the Maori art work and totem at the entrance to the Polynesian Spa in Rotorua New Zealand. We were a bit disappointed by the commercialisation and overcrowding inside the spa. We were in and out as quickly as if visiting a casino and opted for a wander along the foreshore of Lake Rotorua.

  1. Wow! You made 3 combined challenges! I’m so impressed, I wish there were prizes to give out for this challenge! Imagine receiving the Endeavour Cup!!!! Love all your photos, but especially the Maori Art.
    Dance Craze???!!!! Lighthouses????!!!!1 Tell me more.


      1. Ah! You certainly got my imagination dancing! Imagining crazy kids bopping their way up and down spiral staircases. Love the way these challenges bring forth all sorts of wondrous creative thinking.


  2. Latest dance craze, very clever indeed. 😀
    I had to look many times to see Mr. Seagull there!
    And the Maori artwork, so interesting. I would love to know if it symbolizes anything in particular.


    1. Thanks Melissa. Glad you spotted the seagull in that first sunset image. There is much symbolism in Maori art. The Polynesians were the original tattoo artists and their face tattoos told who they were. These posts were message boards .This link is a simple introduction to their symbols and art and van lead further if you search terms. https://www.boundless.com/art-history/textbooks/boundless-art-history-textbook/oceania-32/art-of-new-zealand-927/maori-art-in-new-zealand-719-5919/
