Now, the toast,
A bite of fruit each –
To your health!

* The haiku I write are lines of 3-5-3 syllables instead of 5-7-5.

A bucket of color, a bucket of fruit;
A feast for the eyes and healthy to boot.
And some dipped in cream look like mountains with snow,
They taste like the nectar that only gods know. 

The lady beside me smells sweet of perfume;
I stroke her soft cheek as a song fills the room.
I say to myself as I’m falling for her,
My senses are simply five kittens that purr.

        For Ang (Angie)

If I write of orange, the fruit,
   And know there are no rhymes
For that cursed word, the poet’s bane,
   I know frustration’s times.

When of color orange I write,
   The problem still occurs.
It’s irritating to a bard,
   Like sitting on some burrs.

And so you’ll notice my neat trick
   Above, I put the orange
Within the line, not at the end –
   Except when it’s for Ang.
