Poetry Thursday - New Life & Yummy!

Robert Lee Brewer of Writer's Digest Poetic Asides is expecting a special delivery today! Congratulations and I hope little Hannah Marie isn't late! In honor of her imminent arrival, he prompted his followers to write a poem on "welcoming a stranger." Here is my offering to him.

Innocent new life
Wrinkled skin and gassy smile
Resistance futile

And C.R. Ward faithfully introduced a new form for me to taste...epulaeryu

Cookie Monster!

Who can deny the soft and
Gooey scrumptiousness,
The warm, melty chocolate.
Its sweet aroma
Fills the soul and mind.
Not just want,
Crave!

Oh, man. That's just CRUEL. My doctor would shoot me if he knew I was eating those. (I wonder if holding my laptop up to my face and licking the screen counts.)

Thanks for sharing the haiku!

I am totally with Bryce! Those look amazing!! I have such a cookie weakness, YUM! Your poems are awesome, I think the Cookie Monster would be proud!

By the way, I would be happy to send you a copy of the Lady with the Bird picture.
