Brazilian haiku; 1st & 3rd lines rhyme, as well as syllables 2 & 7 in the 2nd line.
Flowers, fruit, and fish -
market bargainings are set:
How much do you wish?

Peddler’s brown basket
brimming full with jewelry, rings,
bracelets and anklets.

One youthful mother,
baby balanced on her knee,
shushes to soothe her.

Noises of the fair
circle ‘round horses who pull
carts through the square.
