Pi Day Pieku! Let’s Bake a Pie!

Today is Pi Day (March 14 = 3/14 = 3.14 = pi).

And I love to bake and eat pie [1]. Therefore, Pi Day, to a foodie, easily morphs into Pie Day.

So if I say Haiku, and then I say Pieku, you get it, right?

According to the Urban Dictionary, Pieku is a poem about pie written in 5-7-5 syllable format, with the 17 syllables including a “kigo” or reference to a season.

Here we go:

Blueberry stained teeth,
Eyes rolling back in my head,
Late summer goodness
(Go here to see Dorothy’s “Genius” Fresh Blueberry Pie! [2])


I have eaten the
plums in the icebox (breakfast?)
Made pie. Forgive me!
(my deepest condolences to William Carlos Williams)
