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

CLAIRVOYANT CHARM DUST

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!
