Haiku Inspiration

Nature inspires...

While walking to the library a couple of weeks ago, this beautiful fruit stopped me in my tracks. Something about it's festive color, the fact that it was right before Christmas, and the way the seeds looked like falling tears, made me run back to my car for my camera to capture the image. I spent the next week working on a Haiku that would satisfactorily communicate the beauty of the image. I'm not sure I achieved that goal, but this is the result...

Ripe kernels

Heralding fertility

Scarlet joy
