Smorgasbord

for Sunday Scribblings March 16, 2008
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

By the time I get home
from school,
I’m hungry.

First I change
into jeans
and a sweatshirt

then I turn
on my computer
and begin to eat.

I nibble
on a few email
appetizers

take a sip
of wine
at my own blog

then peruse
the array
of entrees.

I pick up a few
exotic tidbits
at Writers’ Island.

At Poem:
A Virtual Poetry Group
I find meat to chew on.

I munch on three
wordy veggies
at 3 Word Wednesday

and try
the casseroles
at Totally Optional Prompts.

For dessert
I still have some sweet
puddings left at Sunday Scribblings.

Sated, I click
to Word and begin
cooking my own poem.

A wonderful piece.

I think of the photos on my blog as appetizers, the text as the main entree, and poetry as dessert. Seems like we're on the same wavelength.

I like that! Blogging IS food -- for the brain, for creativity.

I'm not sure who gets the honor of being chocolate, though. Too hard to choose.

Very creative smorgasbord. Much healthier than a trip through an all-you-can eat buffet!

A smorgasbord of true sentiments of all of us lovers of words who savor Sunday Scribblings.

very nice and easily as troublesome as an actual food buffet.

First off, thank you for commenting on my post. This was my first Scribble, and yours was my first ever comment.

Secondly, what a lovely post you have here. Just delightful. I'm not sure what all of the prompts are that you've mentioned, but am I wrong in assuming that each one mentioned is consecutive in terms of the day of the week it is issued? If so, I absolutely love that. Even if not, I find the idea of your poem to be splendid, and the execution of it to be practically perfect. Simple, sweet, and all around enjoyable.

Thank you for your kind comment on my fabric smorgasbord -- yet another happy addiction for me!
