butterbeans and lovage
on solstice day

This has been a regular dish for us during the lockdown, once fresh tomatoes and spinach were available. We experimented with many different seasonings and lovage became our favourite.
This haiku was first published in Haiku Dialogue: The Way of the Chef, Troutswirl, The Haiku Foundation Blog, 24 June 2020. A very big thank you to guest editor Craig Kittner and post manager Lori Zajkowski for featuring my poem and putting this beautiful edition together.
Thank you again for all your good wishes before we went on our blogging break and we hope you had a lovely week and Solstice too!
Wishing you all a wonderful Wednesday,
with love from Xenia xxx
