Seasonal Food Haikus

cardoons make their way

to tables giving comfort

the noble thistle


roasting on a fire

the nipping song of Jack Frost

chestnuts burst with Love

    Beautiful haiku, Gio. And I learned something new today – I’d never heard of cardoon before…and now I’m wondering what it tastes like!

    Very nice. I see your cook’s hand at work here. I ‘ve never thought about writing about food..a wonderful idea. After all, what’s more natural than the bounties of the earth?

    I think leeks would make a good haiku subject:

    Allium towers~with white legs hidden shyly ~avoiding sunburn…
