Fruitcake Haiku

Monday, December 27th, 2021

Today’s holiday
is National Fruitcake Day —
the cake, NOT the nuts.

(December 27 is National Fruitcake Day.)

Pastry Day Haiku

Thursday, December 9th, 2021

I almost forgot
that today is “Pastry Day.”
That sure takes the cake!


December 9 is “National Pastry Day.”

For the record, sticklers would consider my pastry haiku a senryu.

National Cooking Day Haiku

Tuesday, September 25th, 2018

My cooking’s so bad,
Hubby Mark begs me not to,
Signed CIA grad.

(The arts CIA — NOT the culinary … or spy one.)


Haiku For National Junk Food Day

Saturday, July 21st, 2012

Happy National Junk Food Day — July 21st!

Today’s Junk Food Day.
One day? Chips on the table—
Way too limiting.

Accidental Haiku

Saturday, March 5th, 2011

It makes me fidget,
but I book myself to write
accidental verse.

Accidental glance,
de-liberating romance—
just the dance of chance.


Shocking incident:
things accidentally went
exactly as planned.


Ms. Bristol Palin’s
book contract and dancing gig—
accident of birth.


Booked reservation
at restaurant, but canceled—
had reservations.


If you dare mention
certain odd affinities,
brace for fidgeting.

A freshly baked pie:
Tasty dessert and fragrant
Co-op buyer bait.
