Thanksgiving Food Poetry

Sometimes food inspires me.



Oh, That Cranberry Sauce!

Wiggly
jiggly
red
sloppy
floppy
round

Sliding
off my
plate
headed
for  the
ground

Slipping
through
my fingers
landing
in a
mound

Grandma
steps
right in it
and it
doesn’t make
a sound

Sticky
icky
blob
three days later
when it’s
found.

Poetry? wow, multi-talented is good. I have to think about one.

Ha! Just what I needed on a Monday morning. Yesterday I polished the silver in anticipation of the Holidays (my LEAST favorite chore), so it was great fun to look at the lighter side of Thanksgiving. Thanks!

Love it, Chris. How about:

Sweet and cinnamon
Crumbly crust, rich, smooth filling
Grandma's pumpkin pie

Can you tell I spend too much time with eleven year olds? LOL.

Cranberry Sauce is one of my favorite things on my plate for Thanksgiving. I love the visual descriptions, I can see it falling of my place, but only to see that my dogs would eat it up before anyone steps in it.

An antioxidant powerhouse of a poem....and probably closer to the truth than most.
