Morning Haiku and Waka

by Bastet
Jujube Tree

Jujube Tree

under the jujube tree
three sparrows chatter with glee
free fallen fruit

under the fall moon
a civet owl calls – who who
in the jujube tree

under this roof lives
a cat and four students
in the garden
the cat climbs the jujube tree
hunting for gormless sparrows

Though the fruit of the jujube is often called red date, Chinese dates, Korean dates, or Indian dates, they are in fact nothing at all like a date.  They look (and taste) like tiny apples as I discovered this fall at my son’s house.  Bastet
