Today is Day 16 of Rena Traxel’s A to Z Poetry Challenge. Our letter today is P for Prose. On her blog, HERE, she talks about prose poetry and writes an example. Even though I was challenged to write a prose poem…it’s really not my style. So I used the letter “P” to be a bit pigheaded and write a Penny-style poem! I wanted to add something to my poetry portfolio that would be pleasing to my persnickety, particular Penny-ness. I think that’s enough “P” references to get by with passing on prose. So without further postponement, here is my poem for Day 16.
In my dream, I baked a cake so imagilicious
Every bite, every crumb—delightful and delicious!
Layers stacked so high. Oh my!
Luscious tower to the sky.
Layer one and layer two
Turned from purple into blue
Sugar sweetness spread between
Reaching up to cakey green.
Scrumptious icing, sticky fun
Touching bright, confection sun.
Up to orange and up to red
Sweet, treat vision in my head.
Every bite, every crumb—delightful and delicious
In my dream the cake I baked so imagilicious!
