Peaches?

Pink blossoms, future fruit?

Orange spheres, juicy sweetness

Will it be this year?

    Haiku is my favorite — because you’re working with so few words, it gives you time to really think and craft. Love the vividness here; I always try to structure haiku around a link between image and emotion, and yours does that beautifully! Great piece! 🙂

  2. Beautiful – both the poem and the picture. I’m thinking your yard must be amazing…the pansies and the trees! Maybe you’d like to do a little landscaping for others? 🙂

  3. My daughter and son-in-law are hoping for a year of peaches this year. No blooms so far, but they’re coming. I love the questioning in your haiku. And, in answer to your comment, I have read The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society with my book group. We all dreamed of traveling to Guernsey together! It is a lovely story. Thanks for the continuing support Elsie. I value it very much.

    I hope you have fruit this year. In Indiana, the fruit growers are fearful of the warm temps in March, then frost tonight and thereafter. Will we have fruit because of the weather? I love haiku and it’s on my list to do for the challenge.

    Beautiful. Both the tree and the haiku. We just had snowdrops starting to bloom in the soil patches surrounded by snow and ice. Tree blossoms are still at sleep. I have never seen a peach tree except on the pictures and in the movies. It’s pears, apples and cherries in Estonia.

  6. Your haiku is full of beautiful imagery! I love the photo too! The weather looks lovely where you are! It’s been cloudy and rainy over the weekend here in MD.

  7. Love your haiku and the question you posed.

    Last week the bulbs came up and the trees began to bloom. Today we have a frost advisory. I don’t get this weather!

    Just a thought…if I photo-shopped your picture and made the blossoms yellow…hmmm. The blossoms don’t look too awfully different. Might work!

    Yesterday I haiku-ed about the forsythia! Spring just brings that out, doesn’t it? Lovely poem and gorgeous picture! I wish I’d gotten a picture of the forsythia, but it was too damp out.

Thanks for taking time to comment.
