Silk Iced Lattes…Flavor in 22 Haikus

Twenty Two Haikus.

That rhymes.

Of course, the fact that it rhymes is the full on reason I chose to write 22 versus, oh, 11, which is a far more acceptable number of poems about a drink, albeit a really awesome drink.

So why write a haiku at all?

Well, I was approached by the folks at Silk to experience their new Iced Latte drinks, and then tell them, in some creative way (you won’t be seeing me dance, I can tell you that), what I thought of the flavor. Of course, I am a sucker for anything out of the ordinary, and this campaign seemed like a hoot…therefore, I said yes.

So let’s get started.

A Haiku or Two for You…

  • Mornings are wretched
  • My bed is cool and snuggly
  • I don’t want to wake
  • Okay, okay then
  • Up I get, but gimme peace
  • I need a minute
  • I could get dressed but
  • NO. Pajamas are better
  • (I’ll crawl back in bed)
  • No! No time to sleep!
  • Coffeehouse is calling me
  • Caffeine here I come.
  • Alas, my hair needs brushed.
  • I don’t think I can do it.
  • Huh-uh, not today.
  • Oh! What do I spy?
  • Silk Vanilla Iced Lattes
  • Right here, in my fridge.
  • No barista, no.
  • No hair to brush, no make-up
  • Just smooth, sweet lattes.
  • So full of flavor
  • Taste buds are out of control
  • Perfection is mine.
  • I can mix the Silk
  • Into whatever I imagine
  • There are no limits.
  • Stir in chocolate,
  • Whip in fresh strawberries, too.
  • The choice is all mine.
  • Maybe I should have
  • Danced after all- Twenty Two
  • Is Lots of Haikus.

Okay, you’ll have to live with eleven Haikus. I am Haiku’d out.

I need a Silk Iced Latte. Not kidding. They really are full of great flavor, and what’s great is that they are pretty good for you too. Not many calories (I hate drinking calories) and it’s easy to experiment with and make your own. In fact, try it in a milkshake! Sure, the calories will increase, but that’s an awesome drink!
