B is for Bikes and Bacon

As soon as the snow melts and the temps warm up I ditch my car and hit the road in style- on my bike. I live 3 blocks away from a bike path that goes through Minneapolis from suburbia to St. Paul.
Some of the bike events I attend have Bicycle Haiku contests. Here is some bike haiku. *I don't normally write haiku so go easy on me if you are a haiku master*

Sneaker to pedal

Sun shining down on my face

Traveling by bike

Tires on asphalt

Quiet, peaceful, serene, ride

Biking under stars

Vegetarians- the next section includes haiku devoted to bacon.

April brings other things besides the A-Z Challenge. This month is Bacon-fest at one of my neighborhood restaurants The Citizen Cafe. They put bacon in everything. They also have a bacon haiku contest.

Pairs well with chocolate

Good in seven layer bars

Bacon, gateway meat

If you love Peeps or even if you don't please vote for my diorama in the Pioneer Press Peep Diorama contest.

I love me some Bacon!Haven't ever tried writing a Haiku. Something to think about.

Nicki Elson said...

Gateway meat, haha. Bacon & chocolate---who'd have thought, but I'm willing to give it a try.

That bike ride from Minneapolis to St. Paul must be beautiful!

Oh man, you had to bring out the 'bacon'! If I could pick one 'meat' to live off of for the rest of my life, it would be bacon. It makes everything better!


Can't wait for C!

I enjoyed your poems.

I had bacon for breakfast yesterday. It was delicious. Oh, and I still have your copy of Entice sitting next to my computer.

I need your address so I can mail it.
