For the RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge #37, the two prompt words were Foul and Sweet. One was unpleasant, while the other was pleasant – they made me think of opposing or contrasting situations. Then, I thought of human conflict. Aggression, action and reaction go round and round in a never-ending circle. So that’s the theme of my haiku for today.
Foul & Sweet
Oppression so foul
Hatched from man’s greed and hatred
The revenge so sweet

When I went to the Taiwan Fine Arts Museum on 15 March 2015, I saw many beautiful pieces of art, ranging from paintings to sculptures and photos. There was a large food-related exhibition on the ground floor, called ‘The Testimony of Food: Ideas and Food’. One of the displays featured a wide range of weapons and other implements of war made from chocolate. I selected three of the photos I took of this display to complement the haiku I wrote.
