RDP Thursday – CORNUCOPIA Create a post (words/images/both) inspired by this word!
If something is good
we want an abundance of it, we want to celebrate it, we want to revel in it
we want to get down on our knees and worship it
in a place where everyone agrees with you- with us- we are one
inside the House of Plenty.
Maybe that is why
being different is frowned upon
walking out of step
having the wrong colored eyes or hair or skin
is a sin
within the sacred walls inside The House of Plenty.
I’ve had one true love, one great adventure and a dog
that we write songs about
and I have never
been invited once, never a member of
the sacred congregation who live
Within The House of Plenty.
Final Thursday of Na/GloPoWriMo 2019 #25 :
- Is specific to a season
- Uses imagery that relates to all five senses (sight, sound, taste, touch, and smell)
- Includes a rhetorical question, (like Keats’ “where are the songs of spring?”)
I love the summer
so say my friends
who love to wear flip flops and insist they only feel alive
when the Sun shines relentlessly in the sky and the cool nights close in
and the crickets chirp and the nightingales sing.
Cool fruit flavored drinks in hand, swathed in slick, thick Sunscreen
the Summer air is heavy with the sent of charcoal fueled barbeques and freshly washed cars and
backyard shampooed dogs
all around them
they sit upon their plastic chairs and cry in agony, ” I hate the winter”
relentlessly like a broken record.
My Summer loving friends sing their praises to the Sun.
Shouldn’t they be singing them all to Ra?
Because every Summer I watch my friends
take one step closer, they are one Sunbeam nearer
to looking like the
on a shelf in the Museum of Cairo.
