Haiku Monday


Sunday Morning Farmers Market

Daunted, drenched by nine.
Then rare orange veg espied.
Others' sweat, I'll prize.

As last week's winner, blogger friend Buzz is hosting this week's haiku meme, and the theme he chose is "sweat." I am so not a short-form writer that I rarely try my hand at these things. But sweat 'round these parts has become so unavoidable that I came up with this little 5-7-5. Check out the other entries at Buzzy's place. And stay cool, all.

Nice, Eggy! I know that feeling well. When you're on the hunt, everything else falls by the wayside. Happy Haiku Monday!

I thought these were tomatoes! Do you think it makes the vendors nervous when they see you on the hunt behind the egetable crates? Bwahahaha That'll get somebody sweating.

Love your haiku!
Love that you wrote a haiku this week.
Are those Sunshine Eggplants?

Still searching here for the elusive eggplant recipe. I KNOW it is here somewhere, handwritten on stationary , folded and in a book .... seeing it in my minds eye but unable to locate it...
frustrating. Very frustrating.
