Haibun Monday – Talking Soup

When I was growing up, each day of the week had its own menu. Sunday was beef, wednesday was stewed (red) peas, friday was fish and saturday was soup day.

The different types of soup sounds a little nuts, but they were good. There was beef, cow cod (don’t ask), fish head, cow foot, goat head, red peas, split peas and chicken soup. Red peas soup was my favorite.

That thing was a meal. My mom would let us ‘help’ by passing the vegetables which were carrots, celery, turnips, yellow yam, potatoes, and dumplings. We all wanted to help make the dumplings. A soup without dumplings was just not a good soup in our house. Then, of course, there were the spices – salt, scallions, thyme, garlic and pimento seeds (Allspice).

These soups brought a healing touch to every part of our insides. You could smell it from everywhere! It was fuel, it was filling, it was love.

through this autumn gray

memory from childhood wafts in –

soup day, saturday

Autumn Quilt – A Shadorma

warm colors

wrapped in autumns chill

leaves flutter

then drizzle

under this mid morning sun

a shimmering quilt

The Shadorma consists of a six-line stanza (or sestet). Each stanza is written as 3-5-3-3-7-5 for a total of 26 syllables with no set rhyme scheme. When writing a Shadorma, I would concentrate on a specific subject. Shadorma need a title.

Troiku – Autumn

autumn gusts

swirling cloud of colors

tucked in autumns chill

……………………………………….

autumn gusts

the earth takes a turn

a time of renewal

……………………………………..

swirling cloud of colors

alive in the autumn sun –

the rustle tells the tale

……………………………………….

tucked in autumns chill

a gaggle of geese takes flight

squirrels run here, then there
