Yes the sad news of Mothers Cookies has inspired me to write, you just never know what will become the creative force that motivates!
I did not like the way the spacing on the page looked with the Haiku so I am just going with the single line method.
October leaves fall / Waxy bags of pink and white / Cookies go silent
Simpler days wan / Trans fats bankruptcy plotted / Mothers sudden death
Double fudge sandwich / Frosted circus animals / Empty shelves remain
Childhood nightmares / Vanish fearsome animals / March frosted no more
Drawer quietly shuts / Stolen cookies melt through lies / Never repeated
Frosting propelled / Dreams of bakery mergers / Hope springs eternal
This takes care of #74 on my 101 list as well. I am happy and sad at once.
