I see that like in Italy, it's a food that brings good luck ... with you black eyed peas with us lentils.
Nicely written couple of haiku, I enjoyed them very much.

Both your takes give a lot of room for expectations of good fortune. Hope has a way of happening when one yearns for it! Wonderful write Gillena!
