🍅 tomāto, tomăto, tomatoes – #Tanka

We are all vibrant
A myriad of colors
Eradicating

Harmful free radicals found
In humanities garden

Smoked Shrimp 🦐 🍤

We’re all just shrimps
Swimming from the abyss
Getting tossed into mix
After heads & tails are pinched
Then discarded & ditched

Rush through life too quick
Find your fingers sorely pricked
It’s a risk worth a few sticks
Eating rich with a flavor kick
Infusing your favorite dish

Simmer until you know it’s done
When bodies come together as one

Game Day

A familiar score
Belts The Star-Spangled Banner
Jets soar above
~
A coin toss kicks off
Bets with a fifty-fifty
Popular wager
~
It’s the food and drinks
Commercials and half-time shows
Pools that I adore
~
Win or lose we choose
To feed greedy appetites
With our traditions

~Haiku string poem
