Dennis Chibi had an interesting idea, honoring last Sunday's date of 10/10/10 by posting a three line poem with 10 syllables in each line on Nora Wood's Facebook page. A few of my Facebook friends responded to my request for ten,ten,ten poems (decapoems?) so, some written in jest, others artistically, here are the poems.
short days of october are filled with sweets
little gouls and goblins roam city streets
leaves turn colors while all enjoy the treats
the last morning shadows of the first frost
recede into the bustle of the day
and garlic cloves will nose their way to bed
Terri Hale French:
slicing up flank steak for beef fajitas
add peppers, onions, and spices to pot
for the next six hours our taste buds simmer
All day this odd malaise accompanied
by the first true autumn day - grey sky, wind.
A day for spiced tea, letters to old friends.
Paul David Mena:
hot sauce so hot it would have seared my soul
if I had one; instead, I was taken
to a happy place of pure, perfect pain.
Mary Melodee Mena:
Just planted dozens of daffodil bulbs~
a big burst of yellow on the hillside?
or a freebie buffet for the chipmunks?
off to see the pig races at the fair
we'll eat pork barbecue while we are there
that is, if I can catch the wee porker
