The optional poetry prompt for today was to write a poem that takes its inspiration from, or incorporates the name of heirloom seeds.
When Heirlooms Stray
Big Mama had too much Brandywine and slid down Kentucky’s Wonderpole
Small Sugar danced the Cocozelle by the light of the Blue Solaise
While Charleston Wakefield and Thomas Laxton stared in disbelief.
Mr. Stripey promised Purple Queen the Moon and Stars
Baby Blue Eyes danced the Frigatello with Tom Thumb
While the Arkansas Traveler rode away on a Green Zebra.
