And the first light of morning
Arrive together

Morning Mead

Gongs chime in my ear.
The pounding, pulsing, painful
morning after mead.

Written by Medsen Fey.

References: Mead is fermented honey. Beer is when you convert the starches of grain to sugars and ferment that.

For those BHD purists that think it would be cheating to publish a mead haiku I offer you this one inspired by the raucous fermentation of my Belgian Dark Strong going on right now:

That’s Entertainment

The yeast do their jobs
In a violent frenzy
Watching the wort churn

Coffee oatmeal stout
A good drink for my breakfast
Wonderful morning

Thursday Morning

after a night out
a black eye and a lost shoe
but things are just fine

Damn Laws

On Sunday morning
I’m faced with an empty fridge
And the beer store’s closed.

After the Party

The cold morning finds
abandoned bottles and me
sitting listlessly
