The brightness of the fruit against the situation of the man is powerful, an effect enhanced by the image. "barely empty" is not quite lear to me – almost empty?

Bill i deliberated over that "barely empty" a bit, in terms of the issue of haiku credibility of the neoclassical type i could not just say empty if the persona is in the scene; and from prior knowledge of the scene if he is the only one i saw at the time, usually there are others about, so i opted for "barely empty"

still feel i could rework it, but i'll leave it like that for the while

you critique; always welcome

much love...
