Madness Jun19 by Mark M. Redfearn midsummer madness— the thud of neglected plums falling to the earth Related Post navigation ← Daydreaming Safe → 13 comments on “Madness” judie says: June 19, 2015 at 11:44 am A sound I have never heard. Thanks for bringing it to my imagination. Reply gemma says: June 19, 2015 at 12:22 pm Falling fruit does thud and then rots if no one picks it up…. Reply gillena says: June 19, 2015 at 12:46 pm nice one Mark much love… Reply meriak says: June 19, 2015 at 1:29 pm I can hear the thud and imaging the sweet juiciness running down my chin. Reply Laura Hegfield says: June 19, 2015 at 1:31 pm It does seem mad if it is not picked up and enjoyed, unless other creatures have a chance to delight in the sweetness. Reply Nonnie says: June 19, 2015 at 1:34 pm oh, how sad if no one gets to enjoy its sweetness! I continue to admire your very graphic weaving of words. Reply artmusedog says: June 19, 2015 at 2:57 pm Lovely haiku ~ can hear the ‘thud’ of the plums ~ Happy Weekend to you, artmusedog and carol Reply From my Forest (@hamish_gunn) says: June 19, 2015 at 5:08 pm THAT is a great haiku Reply rebecca says: June 19, 2015 at 8:58 pm peach chutney any one? Reply Lea says: June 19, 2015 at 9:58 pm Oh it is madness indeed. Especially when one such plum tree, actually two said plum trees, are over my deck and make a plum-jam mess. Every. Summer. Plus I had to pick prunes/plums as a kid. I shudder at that thud. I have plum PTSD. I know. More information than you every imagined, but this where your madness took me!
