And peanut butter sandwich –
A crazy idea –
I had last Friday that is
Now my latest addiction

Notes to this poem…
Except for the fact it’s mini-cucumber to be precise, it’s pretty much what the tanka says! Cucumbers would be just fine. Just a little less practical for coverage due to larger round slices than that of mini-cucumber, leaving larger space among slices than found with mini-cucumbers. Came from my efforts to incorporate cucumbers into my diet as Mom wanted, as a different kind of gift for Mother’s Day.
The poems titled Tanka, followed by a number, are tanka composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Tanka collection.
