@RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku Challenge: Foul & Sweet

In response to Ronovan’s Weekly Haiku Challenge: Foul & Sweet

 Unopened choc’late

Was a treat from holidays

This happened to me just last night, so I wished I’d taken a picture of the off chocolate before I threw it in the bin. Actually, it was the very same chocolate which I had written a haiku about after I’d come back from holidays last year. I had called it “green tea and daggers“. Above is the photo I took after I came back from holidays (that’s 11th October 2014 for my American friends).

It was my last green tea flavoured kitkat, and it had gone all permanently half-melted…

On another note, how many syllables are in chocolate? I pronounce it as “choc’late” so I wrote it like that to emphasis that pronunciation, but I suppose there must be some people who pronounce it properly. Does anyone here pronounce the whole three syllables?

And thanks again to Ronovan for another great haiku challenge!

The Black Swan is always beautiful, surprisingly resilient and very, very powerful. Most Black Swans are wise enough not to use that power to challenge the status quo.
Most…

Anita had the kind of reputation in high school that no one wants to carry into adulthood, especially since she wants to be a doctor like her dad. Now at university, she…
