Fruit Basket

Basket over flowing
Spills onto cloth

Ekphrastic poetry
Words used to paint picture
Artisan’s troth

Why did I chose to write about a basket of fruit? I combined the napowrimo prompt with today’s Writer’s Digest prompt. I picked Paul Cezanne because I also want to promote the Half New Year anthology published by Silver Birch Press 2014.

NaPoWriMo Prompt – Today, I challenge you to write a poem about food. This could be a poem about a particular food, or about your relationship to food in general. Or it could simply be a poem relating an incident that involves food, like David Ignatow’s “The Bagel”. Still not convinced? Perhaps these thirteen food poems will give you some inspiration. Happy writing!
