Jay's Saturday Morning Haiku - 9

Jay's Saturday morning haiku - 9

The English form of the traditional Japanese Haiku includes any or all of the following:

  • The use of 17 syllables, in the form of three lines, with 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively.  Some haiku may employ 10 - 14 syllables, but 17 is traditional.
  • The use of a season in the poem.
  • The use of a "cut word" or punctuation to set off and compare two images.

 

 

Banana nut bread.

 

Hurry up and cool down, please?

 

I want to eat you!

We have HAIKU Real Estate for Active Rain Rainmakers, here in Hawaii.  Haiku Gardens, Haiku Knolls, Haiku Village, to name a few.

Good to hear Bruce!  I have been doing these haikus for a few weeks now and find them very fun.

Always wondered what the trick was-thanks for explaining.

The last line caught my attention.  I'm a tough ole bird and with all the weight I've lost you would be better if you went after someone else.  :)

Dennis - that bread is about 180F when this thermal image was taken.  It should cool a bit...

James - that sounds great, but my wife's banana nut bread is full of grain, low in fat and sugar.  It is really healthy.

Jay-    YOU eat that stuff, too?    I LOVE your Haiku, but that was especially fun!   Thanks!   I guess I'll just have to add that into my signature, eh?   I owe you!

Yes, Miss Dagster, my wife makes it about once a week when we don't plow through all the bananas.  It is a good recipe, very healthy too.

I love it, reminds me of when I was in 4th grade and we learned all about poetry!

Jay  Arthur and I just dropped in to wish you and your family Merry Christmas

Jay, is this a subconscious call to the east?  This one will be repeated over and over this Christmas Season

Posted by Chris Smith, South Simcoe, Caledon, King, Orangeville Real Esta (Re/Max Chay Realty Inc., Brokerage) over 7 years ago

Mmmh, Jay, Banana nut bread sounds soo good right now. I'm practically drooling now thinking about it, lol.

Posted by Erna Neal, A Knowledgable Central Florida Realtor (The Viking Team, Realty) over 7 years ago

Banana nut cake is pretty conscious around our house Chris.  Not from the east necessarily!  I think our bananas come from the south...

Jay - since the photo was taken at @ 180 degrees, by the time you got the haiku written and posted, it should have been down to about 100 degrees - the perfect temperature to melt the butter.

Mmmmm....almost makes me feel like baking !  Enjoy !

Posted by Sally K. & David L. Hanson, WI Realtors - Luxury - Divorce (EXP Realty 414-525-0563) over 7 years ago

Erna - it's best when it's warm!  Look carefully at the image and you will see a slice removed from the left side.  Gee, who could have done that?

True Steven, but her banana nut bread is so delicious it needs no topping!  Jam is good though...

S&D - get going!  Never put off a bake til tomorrow that you can bake today.
