Woody bananas,
untouched by the Family;
a fortnight old



Posted in response to today’s Plinky topic – a haiku about something that drives you nuts:

Uneaten fruit in general. And these bananas in particular, delivered to my door by an online delivery service on Tuesday 1 March. Completely impenetrable and as hard as anything, they haven’t ripened even a little bit – this attempt by Daughter of Mine to peel one some days ago failed miserably.

Poetry now, eh?

“A good rule of thumb for an English-language haiku is somewhere between 13-17 syllables.” (this must be good advice, it’s from the BBC)

I’ll try any form of creativity once.

  1. wrap in newspaper or if you have them brown paper bags and put in a warmish dark place,ie; airing cupboard or a drawer in a warm room.

  2. try putting them in a sealed poly bag with a really ripe tomato… 🙂

    My gripe is pears
    very unripe one minute
    past their best next day
