Grape Haiku Two

perfect single grape
clings tentatively to vine
waits for gentle hands

perfect single grape
clings tentatively to vine
playing hard to get

perfect single grape
clings tentatively to vine
sadly never reached


For Alfred's Haiku Contest

    Congrats on this sad tale of the determined grape. Poor dear, she is probably luckier than she realizes. Top win in a contest with few winners, quite an honor.

    Ricardo, (It's the grape connection) :D This is, to use your own words, perfect. The way you played it from the waiting to the hard to get to never reached has so many multiple meanings that can play in your mind. Without being a metaphor it magically creates thoughts that can take one elsewhere and like you intimated, sadly hanging with that grape never reached. Freddie picked (no pun) the obvious winner here!

    My grandparents have quite a few grapevines in their backyard. This reminds me of reaching for the really tricky ones and failing miserably. Thanks for the memory... you even managed to make more grape haiku, cool!
