    I've heard of Prickly Pear, but not as jam, fascinating!

    And you've caught that special sound of a lid being operated so well!!!

    Love every word!

    Here's one of my own, with a pop! :-)

    Guelder-rose…
    the universe pops
    from a jam jar

    __ 'Tis grand, when thought work such as yours Lesley Anne, creates and energizes other timely thoughts. The cranberrys' tartness… under the pop of that canning jar's lid._m

    reddened cranberrys
    now afloat to their harvest
    wild turkeys watch

    Such brevity and yet the visual and sound effects so lucid! Awesome haiku!

    A synesthetic pun. In a haiku!
    Pretty darned sharp!
    Wonderful poem, Lesley Anne.
