Please Please Me

Plump pumpkin pancakes prepared properly

Pumpkin requires special spices for taste

Pancakes are gobbled up, no waste

Prepared for enjoyment by caring hands, tenderly

Properly topped with whipped cream, brown sugar-laced

I follow a blog filled with a wide variety of great poetry. One of the recent posts was of a style called: Emmett. There are 5 LINES. The first line is 5 WORDS in length. The subsequent lines begin with each of the other words of the first line so that when the first words of each line are read together, they recreate the first sentence!  (see my poem above), And there is a rhyme scheme of abbab. FOLLOW David’s BLOG (link below) to enjoy reading and perhaps crafting some challenging poetry  Skeptics Kaddish

Colleen Chesebro invited Harmony Kent to supply this month’s #tankatuesday #poetry challenge with a Theme Prompt, and Harmony suggested: The Longest Day.

In September of 2009, this took place in Michigan. Over 12 hours. 

7 pm, the call came

He’s 18, and he’s dead

In a hospital bed

Hit by a truck

Heads shook in disbelief

No, this could not be true

But what could pull him through

That he would live

Praying in circles, small

From all who heard the cry

Raise the request on high

Save this young man

Silence until the call

Eleven fifty-five

Dear God, he was alive

How could this be

Doctors went on record

It made the TV news

They said prayer pulled him through

Not their doing
