Oh What a Nice Basket of Fruit

“The Basket of Apples” by Paul Cezanne


This is a painting from the Art Institute of Chicago.  It is the backdrop to the following haikus.


An apple a day

Will keep the doctor away,

Wait…that is absurd!


A beautiful work

That only exists because

Paul shows fruit neglect.


What is that white cloth?

A napkin or pillow case?

That’s some soft cotton.
