The Prose
Hank is most privileged to have collected three 2-feet high
seedlings of young papaya trees to be planted at the backyard
- courtesy of a good friend, Prof Ahmad

Prof Ahmad's horticultural wizardry as seen above is further
enhanced with his generosity of giving away the pride of his
labour, gratis, (both the fruits or the seedlings) to friends and
neighbors alike.

Faith in the goodness of succulent blessings of tropical fruits
would undoubtedly be the privilege of those with green
fingers. Though such ability could be a God-given gift it
would be worth a try.

By the end of the year, can Hank look forward
to lots of Vitamin C rich fruits at the kitchen table?

Victory is ours
You can if you say you can!

The Haiku
gems outshone others
beauty of tender care to
a higher level

Note: Prof Ahmad is still making
waves in retirement

  12. Is this for real or imaginary? Gaining are supposed to be written I first person about a real event in your life. If it is true, I would suggest writing it in first person next time. And I would love to have a mango tree.
