Favorite Foods In Haiku Form

I love to eat food
Food fuels my body and mind
Also, it tastes good.

[A few weeks ago I was looking at a piece on Thought Catalog that was written as an ode to something in haiku form (stanzas made from 5 syllables/7 syllables/ 5 syllables). That is where the inspiration for this ode to my favorite foods came from. Of course, this list is not extensive, so perhaps another one will pop up again at another time.]

Question of the Day:
Do you ever write poetry? Did you write haikus in elementary school?

  1. I love this. I think a loooong time ago I wrote an entire post in haiku. I KNOW I’ve written songs. This is probably a bit more inspirational that you would have expected. (Maybe because we share so many of the same food favorites?)
