Poetry Prompts Day 7 - OctPoWriMo 2016

This is going to be a short prompt, feeling worse today.

“The poet's job is to put into words those feelings we all have that are so deep, so important, and yet so difficult to name, to tell the truth in such a beautiful way, that people cannot live without it.” ― Jane Kenyon

  10. Tough prompt. At least I could grab a pic from husband, a chef, for inspiration. Lol. Here's mine for today. A Matter of Taste

    1. A tough prompt can help you to stretch your poetry skills. I look forward to reading your words.

  11. Well, I kinda did taste yesterday, but I found a new way to look at it today: See the Voice.
