Pieku Friday

The Queen is taking a brief departure from her usual format this week and is offering you -- her loyal readers -- a chance to contribute to the pie-blogging community. In order to take advantage of this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, you need only write a haiku. Or rather, a Pieku.

Here, to get us started, are a few from the Royal Family:

Red juice down my chin
Tart and tangy but still sweet
Strawberry rhubarb

Love in a diner:
A waitress pops the question,
Ice cream with that, hon?

That sounds great you say
A new pie every week
You try staying slim!

Send your piekus via comments or email me at MadameTart@gmail.com and I promise to post them lickety-split.

....A friend in D.C. writes:

Quaffing in pie scent
I sense a savoury filling
Will you share? I prey.

....And from a complimetary Anonymous reader:

I like to eat pies
They make my tummy feel warm
I bet your pies rock!

...And more Anonymous entries:

A warm apple pie
Stimulates tastebuds and soul.
But better than sex?

My pie has a kick.
Like a giant samosa.
More curry powder!

Savory delights
A pie by another name
Real men do eat quiche

...And these are enough to make a Queen blush:

The queen can chase me
Through the kitchen anytime
With a rolling pin.

I learn so much here
The slits in the upper crust
Are not just for looks

...But wait, there's more:

Pie-ku is tricky!
How many syllables in
"Julia Child"?

Confused recipes!
Wrong filling in the wrong crust!
Yoo-hoo! Royal pooch...

Sweet deliciousness,
how it satifies my taste,
warm pie, a la mode
