A Haiku or Two, on Stress

November 29, 2014

Haiku52:
Our thoughts on food and cooking
In seventeen beats. 

Burnt Stuffing

Sarah

Shop the Story

Will there be enough
Food? Will there be enough food?
There is too much food. 

Marian

making pie crust is
like an extreme sport: gives me
heart palpitations.

Guest Haiku-er, Gabriella

Klonopin: a word
Too long for haikus I think
But give me more now

Sans hot water for<br />one week. Best time of the year<br />to get stuff fixed! (Not.)

Taking a shower<br />Shouldn't be so hard, except<br />on Thanksgiving day<br /><br />(Follow up haiku)<br />I wanted to wear<br />Eau de bacon wrapped turkey<br />So no harm no fowl
