haiku retrospective xxv

frosty blueberries.
ruddy cheeks of nectarines.
sun-drenched peaches blush.

vines of tomatoes,
red-ripe, firm-soft, savoury.
basil's aroma.

dribbling cherry juice.
the sunshine smile of oranges.
smooth-skinned juicy grapes.

tender young lettuce.
the milky kernels of corn.
sugar-crunch carrots.

broccoli's cool stare.
cucumber's cold-crisp whisper.
red bell pepper's ring.

strawberry's promise.
kiwi caressing my tongue.
cantaloupe's soft touch.

turning a new leaf
at the produce department.
delicious riot.

15 June 1998
