Fruit Salad: Sweet Haiku Poems

Updated on October 7, 2012
Source



Dainty white blossom.

A secretive strawberry

is hidden within.

Source



Silky satin sips

Swish and swirl in sturdy cups.

Take a crack at this.

Source




Ruby-eyed vixen,

Crimson fire burns thy lips;

Kiss the fruit of heat.

Source



Evil desire,

Seduce me with your syrup

Of forbidden gold.

Source





So tawny and tart,

Your stinging touch cannot hide

Mouthwatering tang.

Source



One, lone, blueberry,

A sugary sweet sapphire.

Do I dare pluck thee?



Source




Overzealously

Zesty…crisp but please don’t crush

Or I’ll just be juice.

      Sing of dark apples,

      Stomach presses cold to reel

      poetic substance

      These are creative and good. I especially like the one about coconuts. The Old English words didn't work for me though, they seemed out of place and broke the flow.

      I am going to look at your website now. Thanks, Hyphenbird.

      I love Japanese poetry style such as haiku, tanka and senryu. I can relate following lines:

      Evil desire,

      Seduce me with your syrup

      Of forbidden gold.

      Great poetry. I liked the way you have garnished eatables with your words. They look more delicious to me now.
