National Poetry Month -- Haiku 8

It's spring in Central Texas.
CSA season.
Our farm o' choice is Tecolote, baby and brainchild of Katie and David Pitre.


We've been subscribers for many years now and there is nothing like a bushel basket of their fresh and organic veggies to put a little pink in all our cheeks after the cold-and-dry spell we call winter down here...

This morning, the bounty that arrived at my front door just about had me swooning -- and I hadn't even eaten any of it yet!
Needless to say, I found it worthy of haiku...


Haiku 8


Oh, peppery cress
turnips, radishes and greens;
Yes. This is plenty.

This is so visual and yet my mouth waters. Lovely.

YES! Plenty.
And enough is as good as a feast.

That's my motto for this year. Enough is plenty. Lovely.

We've tried to hang in with our CSA all year 'round here, but we sure are glad for Spring. The root veggies get a bit monotonous!
