Haiku Friday: Spinach

DisorganizedToday my haiku is from June 12th of my new book A Haiku Book of Days for the Happily Disorganized and Others of Jumbled Mind, one of a 7-book series. As you can tell from the title, these haiku are all over the place. The topic for today is “Spinach”:

stir fry spinach with
onions, mushrooms, & garlic
suck up the fresh love

It’s Haiku Friday again. For the past twenty years or so, it has been my practice to write one haiku every day. Every Friday I share a haiku here, about whatever topic I happen to choose. I invite you to write a haiku on this topic too, and share it with me and the readers of this blog. Just write it in the Comments below. The only rules are: 1) your haiku must be about the named topic; 2) you must follow the 5-7-5 syllable format; 3) no obscenities or hate (I will delete those). That’s it.

You can purchase this book on Amazon here.

One thought on “Haiku Friday: Spinach

  1. The propaganda
    messages from “kids” cartoons,
    like Popeye’s spinach!

    Popeye was “strong to
    the finach” ’cause he ate that
    yucky CANNED spinach???

    Popeye’s creator
    must’ve had an agreement
    with spinach canners!

    I hated spinach
    as a kid until I tried
    delicious FRESH leaves.

    Think how powerful
    Popeye could be if he had
    eaten FRESH spinach!

    (DISCLAIMER: Sucking
    fresh spinach through his pipe MIGHT
    diminish the taste!)
