Pomegranate: Haiku-A-Day Challenge #8

I am joining Trina Haase at Trinarrative for a daily haiku challenge.

I have been trying to bring a haiku mindset to my daily tasks, and during the all-too-brief pomegranate season, that includes daily pomegranate prep. One pomegranate, split among three of us, my son getting the lion’s share. The Pomegranate Council promises a 3-Step No Mess approach that I really ought to try, but so far, I’ve done it my own way, which is apparently the long hard slow way. It takes quite a bit of time and makes quite a bit of mess, but it’s not bad for writing haiku.
