4/30: Zest

skinning thinly, joy
can be peeled off bitter tears–
zest from acid fruit


About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  1. Quite like this one. The haiku seems to be a good medium for playing with paradoxes.

  2. Joy always comes in the morning – that you can be sure of!

  3. 🙂 had fun with this one–trying to pack so much meaning in so few words, and still make it beautiful. I really think I am too wordy to be a haiku genius 🙂

  4. Mr. Walker says:

    Great imagery and meaning with zest – joy and bitterness – so close together.
