fruit salad


The host of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai has given us the challenge of the word 'orange'.  Kristjaan provided lovely photos as well as his own haiku to add inspiration.  You can read the full post here

ah! that sweet perfume
oranges and lemons -
a cool summer night

(c) Chèvrefeuille

all day sunrise
what a joy to live in
my orange house

(c) Chèvrefeuille

Both of these are such lovely haiku.  So full of images and sensory stimulation.  the aroma of the fruit, the cool of the night, sunrise beauty and joy of the soul.  I am certain the other folks that contribute to the meme will have gorgeous haiku.  As with Kristjaan, who writes as Chevrefeuille, one will be swept into another dimension surrounded by orange.




Unlike the real poets that will post their stunning work, all I have running through my mind is the old knock knock joke.  I have been thinking on this for at least 24 hours.  Now I must rid my brain of the joke:

Knock, knock
Who's there?
Banana
Banana who?

Knock, knock
Who's there?
Banana
Banana who?

Knock, knock
Who's there?
Orange
Orange who?
Orange you glad I didn't say banana?!
