Celiac Haiku of the Day
So I saw this website called CELIAC BITES :lol:(love THAT name!) and the guy posted this Celiac Haiku and I thought some of you guys would find it clever and perhaps wish to compose one of your own. (Maybe it's just the English Prof. in me? :rolleyes: )

You know the format--
1st line 5 syllables
2nd line 7 syllables
3rd line 5 syllables

His is posted March 7, 2011 by Tom
The Essence of Celiac Happiness is Haiku


"I want a doughnut.

But I cant have one of course.

Ill settle for rice."

:)

(I am not sure I can compose one that reflects my "happiness" about celiac just yet :unsure: ....I'll work on it and post later...)

No! No! Sorry! That was a rather abrupt post. My son was trying to explain in minute detail a fix he had made on his car, with hand gestures. I'm supposed to look like I understand it. But I am glad when a teenager wants to talk to his mom.

I thought you might like to see our previous attempts. We should do ones about Celiac!

I like Haikus because they are short! :)

I will ruminate on one about gluten & be back later.

I saw a similar thread on a literature site I use to frequent, but they took the last line of the previous poem to make as their first. That might be fun :) I'll try.

I'll settle for rice

But not the Krispies with malt

because they "pop" wrong. :P

History, genetics, and response to diet point to celiac anyway.

I'm not doing well, here! I tend more to Dr. Suess!

Gluten

I do not like it in a bread
I do not like it in a bed,
I do not like it on my threads,
I do not like it, it will make me dead!

As a frequent reader of Dr Seuss at bedtime, I love this!!

Here's my try:

One speck of gluten
Shaky, legs tingle, brain fog

Love this idea as it's something my work colleagues and I do via email about events at work. Here's my attempt:

Whole foods every day,
No more joint or muscle pain,
I am happier.
