Bright Berries (Triolet)

Bright berries on Cotoneaster
speak of harvest time to come.
Others soon will follow after
bright berries on Cotoneaster,
in shortened days they redden faster,
ripened by late summer sun.
Bright berries on Cotoneaster
speak that harvest time has come.

    Oh I love this! I have yet to try a triolet. I took a photo of the cotoneaster berries yesterday so I can put a haiku or short verse on my flower blog. Maybe I will post it next time 😊 (I actually took loads of photos and am hoping there is one half decent!!)

      I look forward to the Haiku. I haven’t taken any photos of them this year – I’m not a great photographer!

        Libgy my camera honestly does most of the work. I keep it on autofocus, have a macro lens on for close ups and just keep clicking as long as my hand keeps working. When it gives up then so do I! It sometimes takes literally 100 clicks to get one half decent one! πŸ˜„

        πŸ™‚ My camera is only a simple point and click thing, with a few simple operation choices – useful for snapshots, which is mostly what I want, and it fits in my handbag.I don’t think I would have the patience for anything more complex!

    Ah, I know them as Hawthorns.

    I adore triolets – and this one is lovely – I especially like the Cotoneaster as a harbinger of autumn πŸ™‚
