NAPOWRIMO- 2017: #6

National Poetry Writing Month- 2017



REQUIREMENTS: We were asked to write a poem viewing the different facets of the same object using poetic license.


Ode to a Pizza Creation 


Flour, sugar, yeast

With a turn, a knead, a pound

If too dry, just add water

Then cover the bowl

Place in a warm area

It doubles in size for two

Remove in an hour

Cov’r flat surface with flour

Divide in two, rest again

Twirling and spinning

Crafty chef’s entertainment

Mold to an oiled pizza pan

Zesty tomatoes

In sauces with seasonings

Elegantly spread and laced

Sausage, pepperoni

Mushrooms, peppers and cheeses

A delicious arrangement

Four-fifty degrees

Just ten minutes and counting

A feast now fit for a king

Note: This is a hybrid of a haiku and a waka.

Written for The National Poetry Writing Month- 2017.
