YUM

 

YUM

Australian’s possess the knowledge to allure,
A complete range of foods, a keen eye, a connoisseur.

Meat Ball Mondays, topped with cheese and in tomato sauce, they drown,
amongst mounds of spaghetti, gnocchi and linguine enough to go around.

Tuesdays, Taco, Nachos, Gazpacho and Tortillas,
fresh salads, sharp salsas and chillies for thrillers.

Weiner Schnitzel Wednesdays with mash and peas,
topped with gravy and garlic mushroom. Yes, please!

Tandoori Thursdays come around with ease,
chicken fiery red as sunsets that’s the key.

Fried Rice Fridays with Stir Fry galore,
veggies abundant enough to adore.

Saffron Rice Saturdays scented with fresh coriander and ground cumin,
in a sea of Kormas and Kabobs is where I find them loom-in.

Sunday is my day to rest.
Time for the hubby to try his best.
I relax with a stubby and wait for the cue,
to smell the aroma of an old fashion Bar Be Que!

Who are you?

Who are you?

by Ayesha and Susan Mehr

 

Starlight, Starbright.
First star I see from Earth tonight.
Are you a star?
Who are you?

Are you Mercury or Venus?
The closest, you orbit our sun,
Scorched landscapes glow.
Such gruesomeness spun.

Are you Mars?
Am I peering in the wrong direction!
Twinkling so bright,
Ready for my inspection.

Or are you Jupiter or Saturn?
Hiding behind the Asteroid Belt.
Pelting your light,
With all God’s might.

Maybe you’re Uranus or Neptune?
Luminous ice diamonds,
Singing the perfect tune.
Like the sea’s serenading Sirens.

Now drizzling across the sky
Appears the milky way.
As beautiful as butterflies.
Again, I have to say.
Starlight, Starbright.
You’re the first star I see from earth tonight.

Haiku Ballad #2

 

 

Haiku Ballad #2

Mind sits and wonders,
Emptiness erupts inside,
Living life alone.

Fragile walls break down,
Tsunami of tears follows,
Loneliness returns.

Worthy cause I’m not,
Angel wings stretch out for flight,
Rogue feather finds me.

Head turns, Angel winks,
Hope blossoms excites my heart,
Thanks for priceless gift.

Buzz!
“Mum, can we play the iPad?”

‘Damn, how I hate Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.’

Nature

 

Nature by Susan Mehr

 

Haiku one…

Autumn, Winter, Spring,
Life wakes, Babes are born, Earth sings.
Then Summer explodes.

 

Haiku two…

A sprinkle of Sun,
Unfolds a carpet of blooms,
And Rain starts to cry.
