Morning Haiku and Waka – January 18, 2015

apples on the ground
huddling by the mother tree
children romp

apples and pears
fall through time, space and lie
imprisoned and chained
sparrows though always birds
fly free in the morning sky

Written for Mindlovesmisery’s Menagerie – Word Challenge.  The word challenge today is a proverb:  “The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.”

  1. Such contrast between the birds and the apples ….
    But … like you’ve said …. I believe apples and pears can be carried away too.
    Nicely done!
