Still Life - Ruby Tuesday

In the Odyssey, Homer declares pears as a 'gift of the gods'

Red glow sweet crisp fruit
Hanging on orchard tree boughs
Washed by autumn's mist

Pears .. betwixt summer and winter .. aaaahhhh!

A very Ruby Tuesday .. for more inspiring photos and to join the 'red' rubies .. click here.

Dear Mrs. Mac,
Another side of my dear Sister MM. she's writing haiku, and she's doing it well.
I'm impressed.
First time I see red pears too. They look gorgeous, "washed by autumn's mist".

This is a nice haiku, M&M. I like it.

Welcome home! I hope your 'Sisters' event went well. Any pictures coming?
