APPLES - MULTIPLE HAIKU

It bounced off the truck
And then rolled down the highway
Apple turnover

-----------------------------------------

How 'bout them apples
When Jonathan McIntosh
Won the spelling bee

----------------------------------------

Apple of my eye
Jenny had the sweetest smile
For another guy

----------------------------------------

Right down to the core
When that apple crossed the plate
An infield dribble

------------------------------------------------------

Just one little hole
In that shiny    red apple
Just one little worm

Haiku-coa Craziness

cocoa powder puffs
for velvet truffle cheeks...
chocolate blush

sunny yolk says hi
butter gives an oozing hug--
bitter choc just melts

mmm, good, just so good
chocolate tickles tongue...
happy throaty slide

messy brown fingers
hot weather melts bittersweet--
oh! just lick them off

no more chocolate
finished in one sitting--
run to store now

burning calories
off for chocolate run...
Snicker bar reward

yummy friendship is...
chocolate hugging almonds:
My name is Almond

oh wait, it's nikko 
chocolate-induced amnesia...
at least I'm happy

rice crispies swimming
in gooey, molten brown pool...
brown rice is healthy

chewing chocolate
is good exercise for jaws...
huge mouthfuls that is

I am Hazel Nut
need warm chocolate embrace...
sorry, I'm just nuts

poofy marshmallows
chocolate, graham squeezin'...
hot s'more lovin'

cold rainy day
hot tablea overload...
Where's the churros?

starry choux pastry
crisp and golden brown then dipped 
thick, hot chocolate 

moist devil, to die-for cake
perfect crumb, ganache coating...
off to heaven now

smothered happiness
when one drowns in chocolate...
cocoa high madness

fudgy nutty brownies
glucose gooey-ness
smack, with cherries

dark divine delight
chilled to creamy perfection...
choco ice cream bliss

cold chocolate mousse
fudgy brown cake bottom--
full whipped cream on top

don't forget the cookies
kisses wrapped in hunky dough...
add in oats for heart

eyes glazed over now
tummy screaming madly--
WHERE'S THE CHOCOLATE?!

caramels in love
slowly swirls chocolate--
sticky goo romance

box of chocolates--
closed eyes, pick one from the bunch
eww, got coconut!

try again for fun
got the cherry covered one--
smiles at empty box

perfect marriage is
equal parts of dark and white...
chocolate ganache

add in liquor too
Kahlua's yum, so is rum...
drunk on chocolate

chocolate cake smiles
fluffy marshmallow icing...
mmftt, mmfft can't talk

one hour in writing...
this is not good at ALL
chocolate torture

liquid gold down throat
velvet bliss on fingers...
choclit fountain joy

plunk, kerplunk, kerplunk!
strawberries skinny dipping...
fingers join in fun

craziness right here
need chocolate fix NOW--
chocolate stash all gone??

oh boohoohoo
anyone got m&m's
even just one?

really need to go!
writing this was bad idea...
turn house upside down

~yes, oh yes! found on floor
itty choclit covered sunflow'r seed
pop in mouth germs and all

Heaven's Rainbow Bridge

Heaven's Rainbow Bridge

green grass and blue skys
fresh water and food to eat
no hunger--no pain

dear friends wait beyond
prismatic spectrumed colours

*Note: 
In 1994, William N. Britton wrote the , "Legend of Rainbow Bridge". It is a hope filled story of where all (pets) "special friends" go when they leave this earth. It's a place of "beautiful meadows, grassy hills...fresh spring water...plenty of their favorite food to eat...others to play with...". That place is called "Rainbow Bridge" and it is where they wait until we get there, "just this side of Heaven", so we may go in together. db

Naughty Pudding

Order by offer
Ingredients do matter
Stuck in first trouble

Boiling some flavors
Pudding missed in sweet manner
Moulding successfully failed

Yet we feel give up
Deserve for a second chance
Re-mould done! Relieved...

Sit tight in a fridge
Naughty pudding had a plan
Mission to seduce

Tempted by its look
My husband eat for a slice
Mother-in-law scold

Naughty pudding finally win in its mission, well, one pudding unsold :p

My New Year's Resolution

Based on pleading from
the seams of my skinny jeans…
Eat fewer HoHos






****Written for Tracie's Guetto Haiku Contest****
I will certainly keep my New Year’s Resolution.  Since something like 90% of people break theirs within a month, I fight to ‘break the mold’ and always keep mine.  Four years ago I decided to drink my coffee black and I still do…I like to be part of the 10% I guess.

Halloween Haiku (for Linda-Marie the sweetheart of P.S.'s contest)

Halloween Haiku
(9.7.10)

Suburban parade:
A night to transform yourself,
and beg without shame.

Subsequent morning:
Pillowcases wear make up-
Wrappers and trinkets.

The Thanksgiving porch:
Mouth with one neglected tooth-
The jack-o-lantern.

my handmade crafts  and make wonderful soups with acoustic musicians
performing there...maybe if I win the lottery this will be the year!!

Pallet Delight Packed in Vinegar

Wrote this because my wife and I both love dill pickles and eat one before bedtime most 
every night.

Haiku:

Cucumber on vine,
Pack them, process them, spice them
Birth of a pickle.

Here's another version that I like also.  Second line was suggested to me by Tim Ryerson so 
thank you Tim:

Cucumber on vine,
Plucked and peeled, sliced up and dilled...
Birth of a pickle.

Free Verse: 

Cucumber patiently growing on vine
Plucked, processed with Mother Nature's abundant spices.
Viola, birth of a dill pickle, Heaven!

History of the Pretzel

Your bedtime prayers
Coupled with the right Scriptures
Yield "pretiolas"

Like arm over arm.

Are more than little rewards-
Sweet licks, salty bites...

DUPLICITY

Duplicity seems
the eagles's keenness,
to impend and kill
the marabous that rest,
too insecure, into
the dusky and calm sunset...


 
Without vigilance
no prey is seized by claws,
the warm flesh must bleed
to make it painfully croak;
crudities aren't fit
for a bloody, raw palate...



Duplicity shapes 
the hawks' narcissism by greed,
to fret the geese that
plan no imminent escape; 
they may seem robust,
but they lack all required strength...



Sanguinary hawks,
which frail fowl can satiate 
your brute appetite?
Hunters seek your hidden broods,
as you seek your preys
for a delicious buffet...
