Tomato Haiku

Tags: ,

By Kira Hamman

Beautiful red globe
Tantalizing in the sun
I will eat you up

Oh, hornworm, be gone!
Every year you break my heart
You are not my friend

Sweet and juicy fruit
Juice drips freely down my chin
Is that a fruitworm?

Tomatoes are yum!
Reluctant offspring, you are
No child of mine

Welcome, tomato
Into my summer garden
Would you like a drink?

    Yikes, Kira! You’re certainly setting a challenge for us here:

    Fat yellow teardrops
    Clustered thick as chile lights
    Are you ripe today?

    Tomato Writer
    Oh, how thy muse doth vex thee,
    and still, write you must. Write on!

    Red, Ripe and Robust
    Jersey tomatoes are best!
    Sweet and Succulent
