My response to Carpe Diem Utabukuro #13
For my favourite haiku, I have chosen one by James Berry. I love the way he has personified the banana to convey how much he enjoys it.
Settled in the bowl
alone, banana lies there
For my own haiku, I have taken an old poem about a mango, a fruit I love, and condensed it:
Juicy and fleshy,
the colour of a sunset,
my mango romance.
