A Haiku or Two, on Fresh Starts

February  8, 2015

Our thoughts on food and cooking
In seventeen beats. 


Shop the Story

Hairs cut. Counters cleaned.
Bed made. Laundry done. Now I
wait for the next mess.


If ironed sheets and
crisp linens a fresh start make,
I'm behind the curve. 

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

Someone off topic, but perhaps not . . . <br />Spotted on a bumper sticker near College Avenue in the Rockridge district of Oakland:<br /><br />Haikus confuse me<br />Too often they don't make sense<br />I want a cookie.<br /><br />(No author or attribution included.)<br /><br />;o)
