Heated Words

Eggs fried in butter
Speckled with cayenne pepper
Give heated flavor.

Bland plain old ketchup
Needs some kind of extra kick:
Hot chili peppers.

Time for Some Beer

Foam up to the rim,
Pale colored beer fills your glass
Let it smoothly flow.

Let beer songs ring out
Sing friends’ camaraderie
Then refill your glass.

Mark Shardine, 2009

No Wine & Bacon Haiku

No wine for me now
Not that I don't like it, but
No beer or spirits.

I think I'll sample
Something else, that refreshes,
Maybe some fruit juice

Orange or grapefruit
Or some kind of berry juice
With lemon slices

Than perhaps some tea
Matcha brewed to a deep green
Color of pea soup

Later in the day
Clear, chilled mineral water
Sparkling in the glass.

As I take a sip,
I already think about
Tomorrow's coffee.

Wine in the future?
Of course, I will take a glass
Well, maybe next week.

Finally, a bacon Haiku:

Hot greasy bacon
Lets fat drip across your plate
Smoke scents drift upward.
