Two in Tandem #7, "The Epsicle", a poem

"The Epsicle"

Grape
rootbeer,
lemon lime,
tart blueberry,
cherry, and orange.
Frozen drink on a stick,
was invented by a kid!
The "Epsicle" is still beloved;
(some are ruined with sugar-free fruit!)
Just don't leave them on the counter...they melt!

This Etheree style poem is for "Alias Jinksy" who has a fun prompt "Two in Tandem #7).  The summer solstice was June 21 - and I think "popsicles" SCREAM summer, don't you?


Elizabeth of "Unraveling" has an image that one can search for words as well (she calls it "Tuesday Collab")  Check out the fun and even try it yourself!  These two women share images and write about each others - they have invited others to join them.

I am going to try and create a poem for the following beautiful images (from Elizabeth of "Unraveling") later today:

I like it, light and delicious, perfect summer treat. It will be fun to write for the tandem paintings. I too will take a look at Elizabeth's work as well.

All three images are the epitome of SUMMER. Yes, they SCREAM summer. I like that. :)

Epsicles sound inviting - so much more fun than 'ice lollies'.

It's funny to see how many different things bloggers see in Jinksy's painting. Raspberry for me please ;-)

An interesting structured poem Margaret. I am no non-rhyming poet so don't understand how this works - Dave
