C. J. Scurria (goodreadscomcj_scurria) | 4309 comments You have until the 2nd of May to post a poem and from the 3rd to around the 7th of May, we’ll vote for which one we thought was best!

Please post directly into the topic and not a link. Please don’t use a poem previously used in this group. Only one submission per person is allowed.

Your poem can be of any length!

This week’s topic is: Honey

Thanks goes to Garrison for choosing the topic!

The rules are pretty loose. You could write a poem about anything that has to do with the subject/photo but it must relate to the topic somehow.

Most of all have fun!

Marie (naturechild02) | 663 comments Honeyed Toast
(Based on a true story)

She hated the substance
spread across her toast
Most thought it was sweet
she thought it was gross
What about cinnamon sugar?
Or even plain butter?
Why did it have to be honey
to go with her supper?
The sight made her stomach churn
all thick and goopy
If her mom thought she would eat it
the woman was loopy
Though the texture was revolting
the taste was the worst
She picked up the toast
and mumbled a curse
She tried to distract herself
with thoughts of pizza or cheese
But the vile, disgusting flavor
nearly took her to her knees
She finally swallowed
breathed a sigh of relief
Gave her mom the stink eye
took a bite of roast beef
She had to eat it all
every bite of the toast
Or no ice cream for dessert
which she loved the most
Why honey of all things?
Why when they knew her dislike?
How could anyone like it?
it was a horrible sight
Some put it in yogurt
or even in their tea
Others liked it with fruit
sometimes strawberries
Mixed in with water
to soothe a sore throat
Though it never mixed well
nasty chunks would float
As she thought of the ways
that honey was served
She glanced down at her plate
and was greatly disturbed
For there was nothing she hated
more than the dreaded honey
Except what was sitting there now
a pile of steaming broccoli

Samantha (sclough1836gmailcom) | 49 comments HONEY!

Oh, honey.
My honey.
I love you more than sugar.
From the tiny pouches and containers, to jars and bottles.
Your rich and vibrinet colors make experimenting a delight!

I pour you on everything including wounds.
(You’re superior to glue in every way!)
Bee keepers have nerves of steel, but they pale in comparison to bears.
(They’re braver than me!)

Cookies, cakes, bread, and pancakes are better with you.
Jelly, jam, and ketchup want to be your friends.
You make cereal taste divine.
If they made a horror game for you, I’d play it all day.
And I salute my famous fellow honey lover, Pooh!

That's a fun poem. Not to mention completely opposite of mine! Good job!

Edward Davies | 1727 comments Title : Mmm - Honey
Poet : Edward Davies

Honey, dripping,
Falling, slipping,
Honey, sticky-sweet

Honey, gluey,
Gummy, chewy
Good enough to eat

Thank you very much. I saw the prompt and wrote what popped into my head. I had to mention the silly old bear! I like yours too!

C. J. Scurria (goodreadscomcj_scurria) | 4309 comments And to people that might be looking to the top of the thread right now. No you're not seeing things; I had made some dates incorrect so I just changed them.

Sorry about that, lol.

Oh, I adore sing-song poems!

Garrison Kelly (cybador) | 9620 comments I agree, Marie! Heh, that rhymes. Edward's poem sounds like something from Winnie the Pooh. :)
