Join me in a poetry experience....

Cheeseburger so kind.
It's tasty, warm and happy.
Is my butt that big?

Make one up...It's fun!

HAHAHAHAHAHA that's the funniest thing ever!! I love it!

What makes a haiku again? It's been YEARS since we did that in school.

Let me know and I'll give it a try.

Haikus often evoke the seasons!

Summertime berries,
so tasty and delicious,
stained my sweater red.

Sunday morning am
summer sun gleaming on scale
deep breath, take a step!

Seattle summer
Look at skirt, short-sleeve options
Wear sweater and boots

Great sale on peppers
10 for 10 bucks - a bargain
I think I'll make soup

How fun! Here's a few:

Swimsuits, shorts, and tanks-
Hard to find flattering styles.
No ice cream for me.

Running on treadmill,
Out of breath, gasping for air.
Next, abdominals.

Perfect apricots-
yellow, orange, sweet and juicy.
Twenty calories.

Crisp green lettuce,
Tomatoes and cucumber.
Low-fat vinaigrette.

Must not eat cookies.
Snack on celery instead.
Dieting is hard.

Squats and lunges
Help me tone my butt and thighs.
My legs are tired.

OK, I'll stop now (I could do this all night).

Let's see, never tried this before, tell me how I did:

Who I am inside
Quite thin and even beautiful
Might see her one day

Kicking up a fuss
Hitting my inner fat chick
Kickboxing kicks butt!

Don't want to get up
Lace up running shoes and move
Back for a hot shower!

Cake in the kitchen
Trying hard to resist it
Eating strawberries

Cookies speak to me
"Eat us we're tasty!" they say
I cover my ears

Love them all! Great first one Nina V....Here are another few.

Food is not my friend,
It makes my body perform.
Yet it feels so good.

Carrot cake, oh boy!
Oh wait, I don't have the points!
At least I like fruit.

One sixty five, ugh.
It seems so far way now.
Twenty pounds to go...
