green of vitality
berries pungent, sweet or sour
life in short.
I am not a poet certainly not one who can haiku. But then there is a contest at Writetribe, how can I not participate. The prompt is the picture given.
When I looked at the picture the green of the leaves struck me. Also the berries reminded me of ‘karand’ a berry widely available till some years back in South Kanara but not so anymore. These berries were used to make pickles and they have a pungent taste. I am told that it is sweet when ripened. But who allowed them to ripen, we were too busy plucking them, wiping on our shirts and eating them.
So folks sorry for the amateurish attempt and please forgive me for my lapses.
* karand also known as karonda in Hindi.
