Today is Pi Day (March 14 = 3/14 = 3.14 = pi).
And I love to bake and eat pie . 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! )
I have eaten the
plums in the icebox (breakfast?)
Made pie. Forgive me!
(my deepest condolences to William Carlos Williams)
Try this Meyer Lemon Chess Pie .
Try my new favorite Salmon Quiche . I can eat this for breakfast, lunch or dinner! (Well…maybe that’s what I could say about any pie.)
Find a pie on Shockingly Delicious  and bake it! If you send me a photo, I will love you forever.
(Oh yeah, about the Pieku…I’m not a poet, and I know it. 😛 )
