Prompt 123: Roads

Thanks to Gautami Tripathy of Firmly Rooted for this week's prompt, roads, and for this poem:

Soup of Health

creamy roads on my soup
create an illusion of well being-
rains pour down my cheeks

rivulets of rain
go down the muddy drain
as soup keeps me sane

sanity has a price I think,
demolishing the creamy roads
as I eat the rice in soup

fork is completely useless
to trudge through those roads
I lick the spoon spotless

if I should die now
think only this of me-
she loved rich soups!

  1. Thank you for your prompt this week. The roads in life are not always clear with our destinations unknown. Through Him, all things are possible; and the path is clear.

  2. I have not participate in a while & road just came along and I thought I should write something & I did

    nice poem, thought I think "click here" is not quite part of the poem

    thanks for the inspiration

  3. Phew. Thanks for helping me process.

  4. I love the humor in this! I am not a big soup eater but you make it sound so fun and so tragic and absolutely poetic!

  5. The prompt was great. What happened to Haiku Bones?
