Haiku Heights Challenge, last day

30 Zest

Appetite for life
grows no weaker in old age –
more concentrated.


The zest of a lemon
in the making of a cake
adds flavoursome zing.

zest for writing haiku
developed with this challenge –
long may it continue.

The 30th of April sees the end of an exciting and productive month for the poetic blogosphere.  The enthusiasm generated by various prompt sites has been refreshing, and some superb poetry has appeared all over the place.  What next, I wonder?

    I always think zest is a marvellous word…
    especially in Scrabble on the triple word score.

    Lovely set of haiku!

    Oh, I was so hoping that someone would put “zing” and “zest” in the same poem—and you did it! Delightful!
