Footprint Sep26 by Mark M. Redfearn her footprint under the plum tree— fallen fruit Advertisements Related Post navigation ← Paper Boat Bedtime → 7 comments on “Footprint” Susan says: September 26, 2012 at 1:19 pm 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. Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: September 26, 2012 at 2:38 pm What? You laughed? I’m mortified! 🙂 Reply elleceef says: September 26, 2012 at 3:54 pm I see something very sad here. Is it the romantic in me? Perfect haiku. Reply Barbara says: September 26, 2012 at 5:13 pm Eve? Or is there another fallen woman ….er, fruit? Reply Patti says: September 26, 2012 at 7:37 pm 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. Reply whistlingninja says: September 27, 2012 at 2:23 am 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!

I’m having a hard time putting it into words. Footprint Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Enter your comment here...
