Lunch



Hot bowl of curry
I lick the fingers;
And taste you

-------------------------

Layers on layers
I peel the onion;
Nothing but tears

-------------------------


Smell of food in air
Both run to the garbage bin;
The dog wins





For Haiku Heights ‘ lunch’

  5. I find those elaborate cooking of traditional dishes quite tearful!! Why do meals have to be so complicated?? ;)

    1. Same here Nanka but my mom has a strong reasoning behind it "Tears enhance the taste of any dish" :)
