Chocolate

GardnersToday my haiku is from April 8th of my book A Haiku Book of Days for Gardeners, Tree-Huggers, and Other Nature Lovers, one of a 7-book series. The haiku topic for today is “Chocolate”:

clear away the dead
dirt as rich as chocolate
waiting underneath

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.

If you’re interested in the story of how The Haiku Book of Days series came to be, check out my previous blog post here. You can purchase this book on Amazon here.

One thought on “Chocolate

  1. Chocolate early
    or chocolate late? Any
    time, it’s delicious!

    Is chocolate cake
    “devil’s food” because it is
    so temptingly good?

    Dark chocolate is
    great, but too much cacao?
    Bitter, not better!
