The Shopper

A shopper returns home after an early-morning visit to the mercado in San Miguel de Allende, Guanajuato, México.

From the marketplace
she carries in her basket
daily bread—and light!

  1. You fill the basket up with a wonderful story

  2. Many years ago I was on a exchange visit to France staying with family in Meaux. In the morning their two boys and I would walk to the bakers to get fresh Baguettes for the whole family. So you could say I’ve done that too!

  3. I remember the daily trip in Paris. And the Light.

  4. LOVELY! Bread and light make for a brilliant day!

  5. LOVELY! Bread and light make for a brilliant day.

  6. I love this haiku! I used to do something similar when I lived in Germany, buying fresh rolls or bread from the bread stall. The farmers’ market that used to be in our local town here in the UK was destroyed when Tesco opened up a store.The market place is so important to community and culture.

  7. A wonderful micro poem! I love the way the shopper fills up the basket with bread and light.

  8. The daily task. Simple, but essential.

  9. Life’s daily routine brings contentment to those who depend upon it…

    I love the colors of Mexico. The market and a basket – happy images.

  11. I love this haiku….indeed, “daily bread” gives light!

  12. Amen for small blessings! 🙏🏽

  13. What a wonderful photo and sweet haiky, oh yes – the daily bread is the best, especially when there’s a little light too! Wishing you pure meals and lots of light this weekend!

  14. A lovely and evocative haiku!
