OctPoWriMo Day 26 – Morning Haiku and Waka – October 26, 2015

under the jujube tree
three sparrows chatter with glee
free fallen fruit

under the fall moon
a civet owl calls – who who
in the jujube tree

under this roof lives
a cat and four students
in the garden
the cat climbs the jujube tree
hunting for gormless sparrows

Though the fruit of the jujube is often called red date, Chinese dates, Korean dates, or Indian dates, they are in fact nothing at all like a date.  They look (and taste) like tiny apples as I discovered this fall at my son’s house.  Bastet

    • Hi there–regarding your request to make your last comment on my blog private…other than deleting it, I don’t know how to do that; so it’s been deleted. I hope that’s what you wanted–and I’m so sorry about….(?) Take care, J L


    • Thanks so much Grace, it’s been a pleasure for me to discover your work too … we should have year ’round events like this one … they create a great opportunity to bounce our work off one another and see new styles.


  1. This is an amazing poem Georgia! It really sings its own song – fashioned by your lines and words – and the sense of being there – seeing this story unfold – is so apparent to me – it leaves me dizzy and senseless – but in a wonderful way. I’ve definitely had a new adventure and experience in reading this. You totally rocked this XD
