Sonnets are this month’s form for Pensieve’s Poetic
License, English Sonnets in particular. In honor of Valentine’s Day, you were asked to write about something you love, particularly some thing you love that’s not typically Valentine fare.
If you click the PPL link, you’ll see writing a sonnet sounds much more intimidating than it actually is.
If you haven’t written one yet, come on, you can do it! And when yours is completed, be sure to link back here and we’ll come visit! (Non-bloggers may submit one in comments here or email me and I’ll post it for ya.)
For me, I was waxing nostalgically poetic about one of my favorite things to eat. Amazingly, it’s not chocolate–or dessert of ANY kind!–or even my precious caramel machiatto breves…it’s a bit saltier and I could eat my weight in ’em.
<— Although after I uploaded that picture, I was rethinking my theme selection. Sudden espresso drink cravings just appeared on my radar…I’m gonna be toast (and a thousand pounds heavier) when that Starbucks gets built at our exit…:/.
Fresh and crisp, I greet you, adoring
Hungry for what you’re known to give
Time, irrelevant, evening or morning
I taste you, devour you, and yes, I live!
My favorite shape tis curled and twisted
I’ll seek those among this seasoned crowd
Blended spices, can’t be resisted!
I need some now! my heart thumps aloud.
Life-long love, paired with Coke, it knows no end.
Tis true “just one” cannot satisfy.
When I reach bottom, feels like losing a friend–
When all are gone I might have to cry.
Hate thee, I should, you go straight to my hips!
My dd and I fight over the folded chips with bubbles in them. *bites lip*
Very fun, creative contest!
I’m headed over with my Pepsi. Dost I hear thee cruching without me?
Oh, I love it! You did a fantastic job with this one! Made me crave some bbq chips too in the process!
Thanks for PPL again by the way, I’m having WAY too much fun with it!
Love it! Makes me crave potato chips, though, which is just evil.
I’m still getting over my migraine, so I only did one poem. Hope you like it!
Brilliant! Great work Robin!
And I had a blast doing this one… so thanks!
Brilliant! I wondered how you were going to write a sonnet about potato chips…..I laughed myself silly!
Robin, I love Lay’s Barbeque chips and it’s so funny I have not bought any in about six months or more. I bought a bag yesterday. Mmmm….good! I have written my poem and I am going to post it tomorrow!
Loved it! Oh yummy crisps! although Salt and Vinegar are best and no I couldn’t write a sonnet about them I’m just not that clever with words. Loving reading all the creative ones featured here though!
Outstanding post. I will have mine up later today. My grandson loved the picture of the barbecue chips. He wanted me to ask if we could ask you to send some. This is the first thing he wanted to eat since he got sick so I am off to the store.
Happy St. Valentine’s Day to all y’all!
I didn’t remember poetry tasting so good. I love that sonnet! You set a great example for the rest of us!
I love the sonnet, and Lays BBQ chips, and coke. They don’t do much to my hips though, a little higher and to the middle, yes indeed right around the ol belly button. That’s where they show.
Thanks girl – now I am craving bbq potato chips. I can taste them in my mouth. I need to run to the store.
Well, you just blew me away. *grabs a chip on the go* I shall return later, when the wind blows me back over here. 😉
Better late than never, huh?
Ditto on the Lays, btw…
Crickl, we call those “curly chips” and yes, those are the first ones I wanna go after, too. Perhaps you and I need to have our OWN bags if we ever get together ;).
Swampy, may it never be! I’ll even have crushed ice and a straw waiting on you!
Karina, you sound like me, GirlieQ–I DO have fun with this stuff (wish I had time to follow more of the poetry prompts).
Jana, I’m glad you felt well enough to get even one churned out (and yes, I thoroughly enjoyed it!). I thought I might do more than one, but I kinda got tied up :).
Brandon, welcome to PPL; thanks for your kind words here and at your place and I hope you’ll play again :).
Sieglinde, sounds like fun to me!
Junebug, weren’t they marvelous? Did you get ’em before or after you read my poem? Looking forward to reading yours, too.
Alix, I bet rhymes about chips have been floating around your brain, though. I’m not a salt and vinegar fan, but I’ve got a few of those in our fam.
Sandy, bless his heart! Did you get that child some bbq chips? I WILL send him some if you didn’t!!
Min, and you’ve set a lovely example when we try Italian sonnets ;).
Inheritor, that image just burned a hole in my retinas…thanks for not posting a picture;).
Karmyn, **snickers** 🙂
Pear Lady, I like the way you think…kinda random but makes me smile :).
Susan, that’s one of my life’s philosophies…(which rubs the “better never late” people the wrong way).
Hi Robin…..I have to apologize. I am coming off having a bad flu and didn’t read the instructions in FULL for the poetry challenge. When I read everyone else’s, I was going, “WHAT a dork I am” So uh, ‘no rules, just write’ it was….heh.
Anyway, that was fun and I’d love to try the next one when it comes along. Please add me to your email reminder list if you would?
Thank you for doing this…..I like it.
I love your sonnet, Robin! Well done!
I posted my poem finally! 😀
Oooh, I like your sonnet. I love chips as well especially Doritos
