    1. Thanks Laurice.
      Considering all I had gone through, I’m doing quite well. Have been able to get out and enjoy the outdoors again – inspiring more haiku.
      Hope you too are well.

    A lovely haiku Seren. The juxtaposition of unripe tomatoes with a positive diagnosis is full of hope. Nice work!

    1. Thank you Carole. Much appreciated.
      And congrats to you too – I’ve seen your work pop up all over.

    1. Thanks Pris.
      I had not actually thought of that connection between the two parts. But it definitely works.
      My inspiration was having seen my green tomatoes when I first heard I had a suspicious mass and wondering if I was going to see them ripen. My first version of this haiku expressed that sentiment more. Then I got the good news and edited the poem to reflect that.
