    This was the first footprint Haiku to get a laugh from me, though, of course, I would have to know the particulars. It is a plum tree, however, and there is something just luscious and lasting about plums.

    I see something very sad here. Is it the romantic in me? Perfect haiku.

    Eve? Or is there another fallen woman ….er, fruit?

    Interesting to see the interpretations of the readers. To me this spoke of virtue lost. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. 🙂 I liked it a lot.

  5. you write what you write, but interpretations are personal – one of the raisons d’etre of haiku is to keep the poetry minimalistic to allow individuals to bring their own experiences to colour the sketch you have made

    I interpret this three ways – and don’t know which one (if any) is correct. Two of them aren’t funny, but one of them is, well … steamy! I can see why it could make someone laugh!

    There is something wistful about this haiku, as though the fruit fell too soon. I don’t know. I’m having a hard time putting it into words.
