Autumn Fruit – Haiku

16 Nov

So this is my second attempt at writing a Haiku poem. You tell me if I did better this time.



Autumn Fruit

by Vashti Quiroz-Vega

Crisp, juicy apple

Scrumptious to eat

In paradise a lover’s kiss


Young lovers eating an apple

Love to hear from you.

    I’m not a fan of this form of poetry Vashti but that was delightful.

    I love apples, hah. I think you did a great job. I didn’t see the first attempt but I’m sure that one was good too.

    Reminiscent of Adam and Eve… purposeful?

    Haiku is a fascinating form of poetry. The tight structure means everything else is free.

      Zee, you got it, girl! Again, another subtle hint at my fantasy angels series. Shameless––I know. :/ I’m really loving it. I’m having a lot of fun with it. 😀

        I blame a Catholic education lol. So when is the fantasy series going to be released? Next year?


      • Vashti Quiroz-Vega November 17, 2014 at 2:27 pm #

        Ha,ha! Same here. I’m hoping to release the 1st installment of my Fantasy Angels Series, The Fall of Lilith, early next year. We’ll see, my fingers are crossed. 😉

    Very good. As you know I enjoyed the other one too…:)


    • Vashti Quiroz-Vega November 17, 2014 at 11:19 am #

      Thank you Olga. I know you did. I enjoyed writing the other one more, not that I didn’t enjoy this one. I guess I had fun adding the horror element. 🙂

    Love the theme and the word choices..please don’t take offence but the usual, traditional haiku form is 5/7/5 but nowadays several writers don’t keep to that so no worries
    My best to you


    • Vashti Quiroz-Vega November 17, 2014 at 11:17 am #

      No offense taken, John. I’m glad you enjoyed it. I’m going to try to stick to the structure more strictly since it’s really the only rule of writing a haiku. 🙂

    Mouthwatering stuff, Vashti. I like this one very much, but I’d liked the other one you wrote as well, even though they are on opposite sides of the scale.


    • Vashti Quiroz-Vega November 17, 2014 at 11:15 am #

      Hi Hugh! Thank you. To be honest I enjoyed writing my horror infused one best but this one was kind of fun too. Ha,ha. I love apples. 😉

    My kids are supposed to write a haiku tomorrow and I was lacking inspiration… Thank you!


    • Vashti Quiroz-Vega November 18, 2014 at 1:30 pm #

      Aw. I’m so glad Bekki. Pictures are also great for haiku inspiration. Especially landscapes. Haiku writing will get their creative juices flowing. Great idea. You just inspired me! I have to do an activity with a 5th grade class that’s reading my book, The Basement. I think we’re going to write haiku. 😀 Thank you!

    Reblogged this on POETRY PERFECTED and commented:
    As someone who wrote tons of Haiku poems last April, I have to say, this one is great. I just wish I could take the credit! LOL


    • Vashti Quiroz-Vega November 18, 2014 at 1:24 pm #

      Hi Lorraine! Wow! That’s awesome coming from you. I’m going to have to check out those haiku you wrote. Thank you! 😀

    Oh, the last line is gorgeous! I love the direction in which you took this poem – and I must say I wish I could write haiku. Although I’m a poet myself, haiku is the one form I can’t quite seem to get right. You did it beautifully – I’m jealous! 😉

    Right, now off to eat an apple… you’ve made me hungry…


    • Vashti Quiroz-Vega November 18, 2014 at 1:05 pm #

      Hello! Thank you so much and enjoy that apple. Ha,ha! 😉 For a long time I was intimidated by this style of poetry because you have to create a picture and a story with three little lines. But now that I’ve tried it I can’t stop. I’ve always enjoyed reading them and now I love writing them. You should definitely try. Don’t be jealous, I still need much improvement, but I won’t stop trying. 😀

        What a wonderful story – I’m so glad you’ve learned to love haiku. 😀


      • Vashti Quiroz-Vega November 19, 2014 at 11:08 am #

        Thank you. I really do love it. Actually, I’ve always enjoyed reading haiku. I have a few friends that are really good writing them. I was always intimidated about writing them though. I’m glad I’m over it. 😉
