I watch her amused
as she chomps on fruit loops in
milk and scatter crumbs

A jolly salad
dressed in honey and mustard
hot croutons on top

A slice of melon
red and juicy from the fridge
She spits all the seeds

Fish fillet and garlic
broccoli in oyster sauce
oolong tea fills a cup

After supper:
The moon winks when she
swallows cold beer and sushi
the cicadas sing

The following comments are for "Dining with Shakti"
by Shakti

Only 5 meals?
This is so cute that it seems to overlook other snacks Shakti must have had-- an outing to a bar, a refreshing drink -- drinking cola and fighting the bubbles, nothing happened at the water cooler (chewing gum)? etc etc

mmm yummy!
This is a lovely string of haiku, gorgeously put together and they read well, standing alone as well as complementing one another. The only line i would make any changes to 'milk and scatter crumbs' should that be 'milk and scatters crumbs'?? Just a query. Gorgeous piece - it makes my mouth water and long for lunch!

I know they're all delicious and I love eating, except for 'oolong', is this a Filipino native dish? If it were, I should know. ;D Well done, I saw londongrey's hosting a haiku thread, why don't you check that out? ;)

De'esse, yes its a minute typo error... it should be scatters crumbs since "she" is the subject. as always, thanks for the generous comments. Peter, oolong is a japanese or maybe chinese tea but it is my favorite tea. It is just the right finish to a meal of fish fillet and broccoli. enjoy the rest of the day guys!
