Haiku challenge: Choice & Faith

Tenuous, this one. The first two lines of the tanka are ‘choice’, the next three are ‘faith’. For Ronovan’s haiku challenge.


red plum or black sloe

hedgefull of fruit

gathering ripeness

these gems a feast in waiting

for the lean winter

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
