Carpe Diem Special *Jim Kacian’s “harvest dusk”*

Our source of inspiration on Carpe Diem Special this week is another haiku, written by Jim Kacian:

* * *
harvest dusk–
sitting in the wheelbarrow
with the potatoes

* * *
Writing my haiku, I tried to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
potato field-
shining between muddy rows
red rubber boots

* * *
all shapes and sizes
piled up in autumn sun
-potato harvest

* * *
tractor growls
disappear in early dusk
acres of bare field

* * *

    Coming from the East Coast of the USA. I had never seen potatoes being harvested and it was enough to make me stop and watch. And yes, grapes would be even better !


  2. A busy and dirty time. Where I live they shake the nut trees creating a dust fog that you cannot see through. Not great for breathing either. I’ve only harvested potatoes in a small garden cant imagine on the large scale. Great description!
