Memories from my childhood

Mulberry Jam

by Barry Penfold

I climb the tree, large and tall
"Mulberries" Mum said," sweet and full"
Jam Jars fill the kitchen table.

Haiku contest entry

My first Haiku poem. It does not follow the traditional path of 5-7-5. Many memories around Mulberries and the making of jam.
*Note: I have become aware that this entry does not strickly comply with Haiku rules.
Despite that I will not change the entry and fully accept any decision that the Contest Committee makes in respect to eligibility in the contest.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
