arranging tangerines
in a white bowl

    I love the zen moment inbedded in this poem. There are so many thoughts as I read it–longing for spring, staying healthy with citrus, color against white . . . .

    Thank you for this.

    Oops. 😦 Embedded in your poem. Guess I need another cup of coffee. Maybe a tangerine too.

  3. One of your best here. I like how you write of snow and also bring in the white bowl. Then, the color of the tangerine stands out in stark contrast. Really, really nice!

    I just got finished eating clementines (like tangerines) in plain nonfat yogurt. That snack was sooooo good. I love this haiku, too. Timing is everything.

  5. I love the strong contrasting image in this. It means so many things to each reader. Well done providing a story, tension and further thought!

    Yes, it’s very evocative. Not much to add, just want to say I enjoyed it.
