Haiku Carpe Diem Special #20, Chiyo-ni

Today’s Carpe Diem Haiku Prompt is as special based on this month’s Haiku Master Fukuda Chiyo-ni’s The flowering branch of the plum:

taoraruru hito ni kaoru ya ume no hana

the flowering branch of the plum
gives its scent
to him who broke it off

My response to this prompt moves along the cycle to explore cuts and fruits in a 3-5-3:

The Best Plums
Deliver each year
Perfect Prunes

    Love it. I love the 3-5-3 form too. I am beginning to prefer them to regular haiku.

    once a naive ripe plum
    now a wizened prune
    dry and wrinkled

    But still tasty
