Poetry Month - Day 14: Yurt, Periwinkle, Spumoni & Breve

Last week, a FB friend suggested not one - not two - not even three - but four words for me to use! I thought I'd pick the one I liked best (aka: the easiest to rhyme), but, since it's Sunday, I knew I'd have more time to work on it, so I used all four. It's not my best poem, but I'm kind of proud of myself for working in all four in a fairly cohesive poem.

Yurt, Periwinkle, Spumoni, Breve

I spent the day in a yurt.
I figured, it couldn’t hurt.

It’s a shade of periwinkle,
and has canvas sides that crinkle

I dined on macaroni,
which tasted like spumoni,

and was shaped, I do believe,
like the grammar mark, the "breve".

Then I wrote a poem that’s merry,
using words from my friend Cherie.
