The imagery is riveting.The theme explored in the poem faintly echoes that of the New Wine parable.Chen-ou
Yes, that was where it went. I began with the plums, which are ripening and falling. I hope the second haiku was finished before you read. We're online together, LOL!~Kay
P.S. Chen-ou, thank you for your kind comment. ~Kay
I like the connection between these two affirming the potential inherent in both preservaton AND destruction ("If a seed fall" also comes to mind). Many bibilical nuances here. That Jesus could be pretty darn pithy!
Thank you, Brian.
