Jello

DisorganizedToday my haiku is from January 15th of my book A Haiku Book of Days for the Happily Disorganized and Others of Jumbled Mind, one of a 7-book series. The topic for today is: “Jello”:

if your mother made
lime jello with anchovies
you must forgive her

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 “Jello

  1. Donovan? Fellow
    could have sung “Mellow Jello”;
    rhymed “Yellow” instead.

    Donovan, mellow
    corporate spokesperson for
    anchovy Jello!

    “Smoke mellow Jello
    for the hallucinogens,
    not banana peels”

    Smokin’ lime jello
    could have been a thing; extra
    anchovies for zing!

    But Donovan sang
    about yellow vibrators*
    not Jello flavors.

    Bill Cosby arrived;
    tarnished the Jello name; He’s
    “Felony fellow”
