black forest trees sway
cicadas sing snow melted
not empty, listen!
haiku by M. Nakazato LaFreniere
On Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, he encourages us to create a haiku that is a crossroads between these two from Basho:
from a treetop
emptiness dropped down
in a cicada shell
whatever you may say
a morning of snow
However black forest always makes me think of cake so I thought I’d add another senryu for fun:
black forest cake stands
kirsch cherries, snowy cream top
you say, empty plates?

I saw this Authentic Black Forest Cake (Schwarzwald Kirsch Kuchen) recipe by Bekah_Goertzen. It looked really yummy. Since they have Pinterest and Facebook buttons, I’m assuming it’s ok to share their pic with a linkback.
|Here is the danger for me and affiliates. I am picking the ones peaking my interest like comic books (they turned me down — boo hoo) and For The Gourmet which has cheesecake lollis and smoked shoyu (soy sauce)!
I should go to the healthcare and special diet section but instead I’m rooting around in the chocolates and bakery, of course.
