Wildflowers


bright yellow blossoms
become tart Oregon-grape berries
jelly in the Fall

Love the idea of transformation in your poem. And that picture is gorgeous :)

I like the way you include time's progress -- never had any jelly for a long time.

I like the movement here - flowers to berries to jelly... very nice.

Mikers said...

Green jelly tastes the best for some reason.

Sandy said...

Wow, what brilliant color.

P.S., thanks for your comment on my blog a long time ago. It took me awhile to learn blog etiquette. I'm a slow learner ;)

Delicious!

Cergie said...

Is it possible to eat oregon-grape berry I wonder ? I never saw these flowers before and I believe I don't know these berries...
Yes the haiku is nice, I read that haiku needs to say the season, and here it's done with the fact you speak about oregon-grape berries.

For some reason they remind me of popcorn! Maybe because they look so buttery...

Patois said...

Not only have I never tasted the jelly, I, too, have not heard of it. And now I've a hankering to track some down. A delicious haiku.

Clare said...

That is the happiest yellow color I've seen in a long time! And your haiku is really great. The berries and jelly are in relationship, which is very cool. Nice idea!
