Water Chestnuts Haiku

We have water caltrops/water chestnuts here. These haiku are based on them:

handful of chestnuts

chucking out the green cover

white treasure within

~

a bite of chestnut

labors of peeling cover

sweet result in end

~

the water chestnuts

street vendor sold a kilo

scrubbing mud away

.
