HAIKU: Response to One Deep Breath Prompt of 9-18-07


eye of newt, bat's tongue
dessicated and powdered
sprinkle liberally

'tis soon to be the season! (Cackle, cackle...) The prompt on One Deep Breath this week is to write a recipe, and use a title if we wish. Since food is an area of my life fraught with difficulty I decided to take a different tack on "recipe..." And since I'm a Pagan, it is thoroughly fitting, as well. :-D

'til next time, keep dreaming,

Wonderful haiku. I also have food issues (no wheat, no refined stuff, I can only drink white wine.....). Though eating out can be perilous, I actually I prefer the way I eat now, much healthier.

jo: Yes, I love how much my health and mood is improving the longer I'm eating healthier. But I still get side-swiped by "bad" cravings, though less and less often, and they are less severe, I have to admit. :-)

Sandy: If you make this recipe, nothing. But, ah, if you sprinkle it on yours or someone else's dinner -- instant ability to see the future. And that is a mixed blessing for sure. LOL!

Greggo: I almost didn't use those two creatures in the first line as they are so well-known. But realized that's exactly why to use them -- they quickly tell the reader this is a witchy recipe. :-D

I really like your take on 'haiku recipe.' I can almost see the cooks standing around the cauldron.

A recipe I would not dare use, as I wish to control my future as I go, but a wonderful recipe haiku, Patricia.

I want to know too what happens with this potion? And what do you mean by 'sprinkle liberally'? Hee!
