Fruity summer



young woman
pares fruit fast and quick,  
skilled vendor

grey haired man 
bites watermelon,
grinning boy

health guru
snacks on summer fruits,
clear river

  1. Lovely layers of colourful characters - seemingly representing the 3 stages of humanity - or perhaps the 3 sages?

  18. A nice set of haiku/senryu, Grace. Your "Fruity Summer" title ties them together for me. A "Long Hot Summer" comes to mind, the song by Keith Urban. But I don't know why.
