An Ode to Corn on the Cob
Rows of sweet kernals, Each one I exalt.
Is it veg’table, grain or a fruit?
Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a hoot!
Sometimes a 40-word limit is welcome, other times it’s frustrating. I’m afraid my love of corn has me waxing insanely poetic, and this might just be the beginning of a 40-stanza epic.
I’m not sure ANYONE will be joining me for Friday’s 40-or-less Photo Challenge this week, I believe the operative words in the preceding paragraph–"me…insane…" might explain it. But, IF you’ve written a little something for this week’s edition, please…link below! I’ll be right over to see if you share my same affections. Then I’ll invite you over for lunch. The menu? Corn burgers, corn casserole, fried corn, corn poppers, popped corn, creamed corn, corn soufflé, corn cakes, cornbread, and for dessert, corn pudding (is it me, or does it sound like I’m channeling Bubba Blue from "Forest Gump"?)
I’m kidding, just kidding! OF COURSE there’s no such thing as corn burgers!

Oh very cute! Of course I am in! Twice in fact! The naughty and the nice! Someone got on my goat this week! I wonder who? You will have to visit and see!
Oh yeah? Check out this link:
Couldn’t resist this one… Maybe it’s because I lived in the Cornhusker state for 19 years… ?
Like it, am laughing. The couple of rows in the backyard are waving hello.
Yes I chickened out this week and now I feel guilty! Anyway I like yours, and both Karisma’s are also good.
Funny how ‘corn’ evokes specific responses in each of us! Thanks for the laughs with YOURS. I shared mine (in Haiku) at Sacred Ruminations just a few minutes ago and I’m looking forward to seeing what others have done with this tasty photo!
Hugs and blessings,
All I could think of were images of summer. So I just wrote them down. No poem this week but I really enjoyed it!
Love yours!!!!! You always come up with something challenging for us and I thank you for that.
Karisma, your TWO made me grin…and I KNOW who got to ya!
Shalee, YOU ROCK, GIRL! There ARE such things as cornburgers, y’all!!
Kathleen, or maybe it’s ’cause corn is one of God’s greatest gifts?
Erin, I’m blowin’ ’em kisses back.
Chris, I promise to be more “normal” next week :).
Storyteller, OOooo, glad you got one done–I’ll be by soon to see it :).
Kim, it proved to be a challenge for me, too! And, I love word association, so I’ll look forward to seeing yours :).
