Haiku Friday: Harvest

This is the time of year when the really great food starts to show up. Here, we are deep in sweet corn, and my tomatoes came off the vine ripe and ready. Let's haiku about that this week!

Here, I will go first:

I grow tomatoes
And yet, I never eat them
The shape entrances.

Now it is your turn! Just use the 5/7/5 formula, and have some fun!

I smell the grain dust
It taints the sunset blood red
My mind takes me back

I lounge on the hood
Sun-bronzed arms behind my head
I’m sixteen again

Combines rumble by
All us men bring in the wheat
Like it always was.
South Texas cotton
bolls gathered on roadside look
like snow in the heat.

A seed planted, vines
grow long beneath summer skies
nectar of melon
