I Offer Myself


color me orange
sweet fruit clinging to my boughs
to feed the hungry
to feed the hungry
sweet fruit clinging to my boughs
color me orange

  1. Every week your posts look like Israel to me, it’s actually amazing 🙂

      I have to confess that I was skeptical at first. NaiSaiKu is, after all, a contrived form. But it turned out to be a lighthearted Sunday morning exercise, and I thank you for coming up with the idea. As you can see, I was so taken with the form that I tried my hand at yet another! Just goes to show that the old saying is true: With risks come rewards.

  4. lovely shot of this tree and its gifts.

  5. Orange you glad I googled Ent? LOL–Great shot and I may have been a Giant!!!

    Have a super week!
