Poetry Picnic at Olive Garden

Image Credit: Google.com

Take a piece of paper,
Empty like the lazy afternoon,
Fill in lyrics,
Under the watchful moon.
.
Add some Haiku,
Short and sweet,
List them together,
And let it sit.
.
For a surprise,
compose an imperfect prose,
When the number of guests rise,
Shape your poetry like a red rose.
.



We are open for theme fitting poems,
or random poems, please share 
and enjoy a lovely FEAST on poetry!

  9. Such a cool poem-invitation. It would be special framed on the wall of a writing class...would give such warm acceptance of everyone's contributions.
