No Cure


Sweet prickly pear fruit
laid waste by winter’s malice—
is there no shrewd cure?

  1. Don’t worry, some hungry critter will find this morsel and have a feast. I wonder if the varmint knows you write such eloquent words about their dinner??!!


  2. Clever use of ‘shrewd’ there. Well written indeed!

  3. I would definitely want this to stay at rest. If you get too close, they stick you good.

  4. Wonderful Haiga. Thanks for sharing

  5. The way of dispersal is rather unusual.. I thought a fruit is sweet and without thorns to encourage dispersal. That is nature, I guess!
    You picked on it. It is reflective of your keen observation. Great haiku!


  6. I’ve never had prickly pear – it looks dangerous to be nibbly around that!
