Exploring Patterns: Polka Dot Fruit

March 26th, 2012 | Fruit Maven

Is it just me or do polka dots provide a little burst of instant happiness? As if fruit wasn’t delightful enough, these little beauties also have spunk and style — particularly that dragon fruit. Being a slightly freckly girl though, I must admit I’m a bit partial to the tender kiss of those apple spots.

I was so inspired by these sassy dots this weekend that I wrote this short haiku. I would love to hear what inspires you. Fruit or otherwise…

Feeding my belly
My heart hungers for beauty
Pause and quench your thirsts

Exploring Fruit is a series where I explore what fruit has to offer the world in terms of design, in addition to the snacking aspect that I usually highlight. The series has just begun. If you want to explore more follow these links to explore fruit colors, fruit shapes, and fruit patterns.

    I love polka dots on faces most, but polka dotted fruit is fun!

    Yes polka dot faces are particularly pretty!

    Thanks Carrie!! I guess my secret love of haiku is out now.

    Hi Fruit Maven – first, I have to tell you that you are a riot!! You just may become my new favorite writer – I am really enjoying your notes and observations. Second, that haiku is excellent. Really. Aside from being hysterical, it’s excellent. Third, I love polka dots (in case you were wondering…)

    Oh Patricia – Thank you! That means so much to me. If you keep leaving comments like that, you just may become my new favorite friend :)

    Ahem, I know they are not evenly dispersed, but when you talk dots I immediately think kiwis. Disqualified for being in a ring pattern?

    Here’s a haiku from my current CFM experience:

    Scheduling new chefs
    Not unlike lassoing wind
    Calendar still bare

    Megan – Haha! I love that haiku. Awesome!

    And for me, kiwis aren’t exactly polka dotted, but I do love that ring as well and will likely highlight it as a ring pattern in a future post. Or maybe as spokes or something.

    You have an eye for beauty! And/or the lighting at your place is magical. The dragon fruit seeds seem to be expanding outward, like the universe itself!
