Morning Haiku and Waka – October 24, 2014

bright orange persimmon
… ready for Jen

a splash of color
spotting a ripe persimmon
on a grey day

falling from the tree
– wind storm

Writing for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, we had a prompt using “persimmons” (here’s the link to the haiku series) a typical Japanese autumn kigo … Jen has never tasted one, so I thought I’d tell her that, at least here they’re ripening!

  1. Aw, thanks Georgia! That’s sweet! (The poem and the thought, not the persimmon.) 😉

    Soon, right? Maybe in a month or two we’ll see them in the US perhaps…. And then I owe you and Kristjaan a haiku 🙂

    What a neat photo 😀


in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
