Haiku Friday – Beautiful & Curse

21 Apr

Happy National Tea Day, National Chocolate-Covered Cashews Day, and National Big Word Day!

 

This goes to show that there’s always something to celebrate. 😉 Since we’re celebrating these wonderful events (?) I will contribute a little something to each one. First, for National Tea Day I’m going to recommend you try my morning ritual tea:

  • Green Tea
  • 1 tbsp Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 2 packets Stevia

This combo tastes delicious and it revs you and your metabolism in the morning and helps you off to a great start.

For National Chocolate Covered Cashews day I’m going to let you in on something . . . cashews are not nuts. They are actually fruits. 😮 Mind blown!

Now for National Big Word Day I’m going to give you one of my favorite, and I think one of the most beautiful words in the English language, wait for it.

Mellifluous:

Okay it’s not that big (that’s why I made the letters bigger––shhh) It is a beautiful word though and it means: A sound that is sweet and smooth, pleasing to hear.

So go on and celebrate the day by having a nice cup of tea, handful of chocolate covered cashews, and tell someone their voice is mellifluous. They’ll love you, once you tell them what it means.

Beauty has a soul

Beyond the perfect features

Lies curse of intellect
