Travel Haiku - West Tennessee Strawberry Festival - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

Tennessee Strawberry Festival
redder than strawberries
all the girls' lips

Tennessee Strawberry Festival
the little girl asks mom to paint
her lips red like strawberries

Tennessee Strawberry Festival
the girl shows her first
strawberry cake

Tennessee
Humboldt, just a short drive from Memphis, is home to the West Tennessee Strawberry Festival, one of the oldest festivals in the state. Held the first week in May, it includes parades, street dance, music, a BBQ cook-off, and a beauty pageant.
