FORBIDDEN FAVORITE FOODS

FORBIDDEN FAVORITE FOODS

(Mostly as Haiku)

Diet swords crossed

Winning control of his fare…

Far-reaching food fight!

Super-Special sub,

Three meats, lettuce and cheese…

Scrumptiously okay!

StillĀ  buying candy,

Pretzels for a rainy day…

Edema won’t leave!

Low-salt, high fiber

Candy bars masquerading…

Wise ones watch labels!

Complimentary,

Small portions of chips…

Regular soda!

Convenience kills,

Easily lost is control…

Salt and sugar win!

Eating half only,

Sandwiches enjoyed longer….

Maybe wife gets some!

Meatloaf and gravy, rare,

Mass. Turnpike revelation…

Suddenly set right!

Candy corn for kids,

Bag closed carefully between…

Cheating doesn’t help!

Diabetic mood

Carbohydrate-tidal force…

Glucose levels swing!

CHURCH SISTER

CHURCH SISTER

(A sister in the Lord Christ…in church)

At times we were enemies

But out come the friendlies…

When I chose sharing

Out came her caring,

Having similar experience on her knees.

We haven’t crossed swords for years.*

Lately it appears…

She has changed

Or am I not the same ( ? ),

Our conflicts are in arrears?**

Looking into her eyes,

Saw the love that Spirit supplies…

Making sure I understood

That each week she would

Keep track of my fall and rise.

–Jonathan Caswell

* crossed swords…got into a fierce argument

** in arrears…behind us…or deeply indebted !
