“A cheese may disappoint. It may be dull, it may be naive, it may be over sophisticated. Yet it remains, cheese, milk’s leap toward immortality.” —Clifton Fadiman
Read your labels with creativity in mind.
Go to your refrigerator. Look at the back label on a package of cheese. Pick out a few interesting words from the label and jot them down. Craft a poem using the words you’ve gathered.
If there’s (tragically) no cheese in the icebox, find one food item that pairs nicely with cheese and create a poem from that label instead.
Thanks to everyone who participated in last week’s prompt. Here’s a haiku from Elizabeth that we fancied:
Still Life: Nuts and Cheese
Edible art, still
I want to stand, stare at your
Beauty, I am torn
Sometimes we feature your poems in Every Day Poems, with your permission of course. Thanks for writing with us!
