ALL FOR CHOCOLATE by Granny Annie

Laying in the grass
Gazing at the stars
Stuffing my mouth
With Mars candy bars,
Sudden wet sprinkles
Caused me to refrain
And run inside from
The pouring rain.
No way could
I begin to quell
The candy desire...
The chocolate smell
So I ventured out
Into the rushing flood
Risking life and limb
Scratches bringing blood.
I was filled with fear
Fighting the undertow.
End of life felt like drifting
Softly on a moon shadow.


Give this challenge a try.  Post your writing on your own blog or in the comment section of Carolyn's blog.  Let me know if you gave it a shot. Write a short story using the words or a poem or whatever direction calls.

  2. Tabor, are you kidding? You could cinch this. Most write stories and not poetry but you would rock both.

  3. Another thing Tabor...I never read any of the other writings until mine is done for fear of having my thoughts influenced. Just look at the words and let your story evolve.

  13. I love this poem and left a comment at Carolyn's saying just that.
    I've discovered that I'm able to leave chocolate alone now, more than I eat it.
