"Kiwi" a poem 199/365

Kell's poetry prompt day 13 is:  Run around the house and grab 5 items that all begin with the same letter.  Write a poem as an ode to one of these items or that includes these items.   I grabbed: Kiwi, Knife, Kettle, Kodak camera, and sat down next to my Kitty.  It was way to tough to tie them together and I was hungry...


Not exactly a golden egg
At least not in our house
As no one seems to beg
to eat them.  I try to espouse
the importance of nutrition;
its vitamin C A and D!
"Eat a hairy fruit?" in unison
they cry.  Fine.  All the more for me!

Hey, I ONLY had 5 minutes so don't expect much with poetry today!  :)  I am the only one that loves (or likes) kiwi in my family.  I have tried to sneak them in recipes, (I do peel the "hair" off of them) but my family always finds me out.  Oh well, like I said, more for me.

Check out my poetry book giveaway - on my sidebar or HERE.  I'm giving away two free poetry books on April 1st.

Today is also "Black and White Wednesday".  These pears weren't perfect as they had blemishes... but they were delicious! :)

Margaret, I like your hairy fruit poetic conclusion. If I were there you would have to share. :-)

I like pears just like that, they're just the right ripeness. I didn't know until last year that pears don't ripen on the tree. You have to bring them indoors, and they ripen after picking. (We have a tree: lesson learned.)

Really, really great B&W!!

Margaret said...

Thank you! I'm preparing for Spring Break and this was a fast post.

G-Man - Classy!!?? I'm lovin' THAT compliment.

Texwisgirl & Ruth - Yes, "hairy". That is what my youngest daughter calls them and it always makes me laugh. I love SO many different foods that my family won't eat.... very frustrating.
