Summer Supper Menu

Thrilled that this poem was featured by National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) 3 April 2015. The generative prompt was from the preceding day:   “…Today, I challenge you to take your gaze upward, and write a poem about the stars… Any form or style will do.”


peach and cherry sunset cocktails

rimmed with slices of fresh silence


skyful of shooting stars with

lucky tails to slurp like spaghetti —

plenty of stardust sauce to splatter


darkest chocolate sky-pie

to nibble and lick towards infinity

until there’s nothing left to do

but roll over into a spoon.
