nutty haikus

NUTTY HAIKUS. 

Hazelnut
the humble hero

of nutella, praline, and
frangelico fame

Macadamia
those white choc ‘cookies’

are stale, fail. this nut merits
my grandma’s muesli

Peanut
the most versatile

of flavours, and adhesives.
what else can glue tongue?

Cashew
It’s not that I don’t

like you… But you just fail to
inspire a haiku

Almond
toasty, salty, smooth

or spicy. the adjective
of exotic eyes

Pistachio
gelati is nice,

sure. but I like them raw, and
playing hard to get

Walnut
oh brainy little

brain-i-ac… is your plan to
make me smart or fat?

  1. Jean, I absolutely love your haikus. And your writing in general. And I’m totally trying that salad. (Sorry for the delayed comment – I’ve had your post sitting open in a tab in my browser for a week waiting for me to get around to reading it!) xo

    • Hi Bron! Don’t apologise! Thank you so much for taking the time to read everything. Your encouragement means a lot to me…I can feel the warm fuzziness/Brisbane sunshine all the way from over here :-)

don't be shy...
