around the hearth
before its warm glow
talk of ancestry . . .
our son brings in
more wood for the fire

Simon Hanson lives in country South Australia enjoying the open spaces and nearby coastal environments. He is excited by the natural world and relishes moments of the numinous in ordinary things. He is published in various journals and anthologies and never realised how much the moon meant to him until he started writing haiku.
