Hungry haiku #1

on finding no chocolate
I eat stuffed olives.

They taste of sunshine and warmth, the
summer of my thirtieth year.

I love those five-syllable words, oh yes.

Green or black?

Both are good but I'm much more a fan of the black olives.

I like haikus. I'm horrible at writing them so it always amazes me that people can be so structured with poetry. And yet, even though they're structured, there's so much imagery in so few words. I guess we're always the most fascinated by what we can't do.

Thank you, my dears.

DM: green, stuffed with anchovy paste. Wonderful.

I sweep my hat off to you!

That said, however, as much as I love olives they could no more stand in for chocolate than oysters could, even with the summer images.

Swapping savory for sweet
Not the same at all

Sweet is quiet relaxation
Savory is loud, bright movement

I love olives and haikus. Had some olives for lunch. Plenty of chocolate around here, but my sweet tooth seems to be fading. Savouries all the way... and some mocha coffee.

Well, olives are not a substitute for chocolate, that's clearly true. But I had to eat something else I'd have ... well, been unhappy. Funny thing is, I replaced the olives but didn't buy any chocolate. Paging Dr. Freud.
