2021 NaPoWriMo April 18 More Jam in Store


Prompt:
write a poem based on the title of one of the chpaters from Susan G. Wooldridge’s Poemcrazy: Freeing Your Life with Words. The book’s table of contents can be viewed using Amazon’s “Look inside” feature. Will you choose “the poem squash?” or perhaps “grocery weeping” or “the blue socks”? If none of the 60 rather wonderful chapter titles here inspire you, perhaps a chapter title from a favorite book would do? For example, the photo on my personal twitter account is a shot of a chapter title from a P.G. Wodehouse novel — the chapter title being “Sensational Occurrence at a Poetry Reading.”

Happy writing!

“gas, food, longing”

More Jam in Store

should have opted for the blue socks
dangling from the line
in the sunshine, almost dry

or picked “hi there, stars”
taking me into the cosmos, hifi
met the image angel

no wrangling for a heavenly PR gloss
on a tattered not so flattering CV
overgrown with moss like a tree

never reached there, stars take you
elsewhere, keep you on the move
in the groove, movie remakes

food part of recurrent surprises
black current or red, fresh jam flavors
aromas, textures, tastes to savor

save nothing ever satiates
restless remains eager for more
unexpected discoveried in store

in a never ending string of longings
