A Haiku or Two, on Apples

September 19, 2014

Our thoughts on food and cooking
In seventeen beats. 

Apples on Food52


I love them so much,
Yet give me a Macintosh,
And I will decline. 


Romanticize fall
all you want; i'll just eat this
apple, quite loudly.

Are you inspired to write a poem about apples? The comments below are a safe space to express yourself.

Fall! Let's waltz ourselves <br />Down to the farmers' market...<br />Sweetangos are here!

Apples of New Year<br />Dipped in gold honey so sweet<br />Soothes my heart and soul<br /><br />

The apples of fall<br />end up in a pie so fine,<br />I wish they were mine.

Rome, Spy, Ida Red<br />Yet all are quite delicious<br />Don't make me choose one<br />

Apples? No, not yet!<br />Galas can wait -- there are plums!<br />And plums equal cake.<br /><br />Or tortes, if fancy.<br />So -- "Miss Jackson" when nasty;<br />"Miss Burros," fancy.
