Celebrate Poetry-4/25: FAVORITE FOOD

The theme for Day 25′s celebrating National Poetry Month is “FAVORITE FOOD.” Click HERE for details of this haiku celebration of throughout the month of April.

It’s a complete coincidence that I am writing a “favorite food” haiku on a day that I’ve been fasting for 24 hours for a minor medical procedure. I’m starving, therefore everything is my favorite right now. I love (in no particular order), sushi, fried rice, enchiladas, pot roast, meat loaf, short ribs, pancakes dribbled with melted butter, squash casserole (had to have a vegetable in there somewhere), red velvet cake . . . the list could go on and on. Especially today. But whenever I have a real craving for something, it seems it’s always a chocolate milkshake. What I don’t like is that last slurp.

milkshakelike the last, long slurp
of a thick chocolate shake
beloved book’s last page

    I start to smell it
    As it slowly starts popping
    Now it’s movie time

  2. Azim Khan says:

    on a bed of rice
    continuum of spices
    grandma’s recipe

  3. Azim Khan says:

    kebabs in skewers
    and freshly baked bread
    home again

  4. Cheese and mayonnaise
    Heaven on a whole grain slice
    I could live on that!

  5. Nora says:

    Round, bubbly, cheesy
    Topped with layers of flavors
    What else could I be….

  6. Jim Barton says:

    Creamy chocolate,
    Chock full of crunchy pecans—
    Fantasizing fudge
