My Recipe

Christi Haddock

This collection is dedicated to my grandma Margie. Without her recipe for my life I would not be who I am today.

I created my collection of haiku out of my own life experiences and feelings, the things that really happened in my day to day life. I enjoyed including my family and friends in my writing. I hope my collection gives you, the reader, the same warm loving feeling I had while writing them.

her recipe I follow
it never turns out
quite like hers


my first Thanksgiving
grandma—she still makes
the pies

a pinch of nutmeg
a hint of sage
family recipe


Sunday morning
home work
is my church

football Sunday
in the crockpot


a fine wine
old friends are
better with age

one song
to first love


music to my ears
can we make cookies?
