  1. I like #2! It happens often but putting “indigo pods” in the line brings about other levels of the imagery such as the unusual blueness of indigo, how it is used and how it stays. As well pods do break open easily as if on their own to reveal as openly the seeds. Breaking pods and talking seem like a pair because one can be inattentive or attentive to the other and still both tasks get on.

    • Those are great observations, Alegria — I hadn’t even thought about those things — once again a reader has taught me something about my own haiku. 🙂
