Potry Friday: Apple Haiku



Welcome to Poetry Friday! As I was mulling over what I might post this week, my granddaughter showed me her apple and exclaimed, "Look! It has polka-dots!" Well, of course that line provided this week's inspiration.


Rosy red ripened 

Deliciously tasty tart 

Autumn polka-dots

  1. What a charming muse you have! I like the sound of "tart" and "dot" together (and all those Rs).

  3. I'm a polka-dot gal (hence my blog background) and I love your granddaughter's "spot-on" observation. And I love the "short and sweet" poem it inspired. :)

  10. An astute observation by your grand-daughter has led you to a photograph and a poem capturing a small precious moment for time immemorial Kimberly. This is the stuff of legend. Frequently recalled across the years as a magical moment worthy of retelling.

  15. Autumn polka dots, yes! Next up: the gorgeous spotting I keep finding on autumn leaves, and the pitter-dotting going on right now on my patio table in the rain. (My daughter eats the whole skin off the apple first and then goes around again on the plain flesh.)
