Wednesday Poetry Prompts: 175 (Dessert Poems)

Publish date:

For this week's prompt, write a dessert poem. The poem can be titled as a dessert. The main characters could be eating or waiting for dessert. Or dessert could just be hinted at in the poem. Of course, I'm expecting a variety of desserts to be mentioned. Happy poeming!

Here's my attempt at a dessert poem:

"Strawberry Cheesecake"

Most pictures don't do the real thing justice,
but there you are--in your airbrushed glory--
smiling straight into the camera (some
lucky photographer who got to say,
"smile," in person) with your hair suspended
around your face like fire ready to burn
a house down (or something) and my hunger
couldn't be any more piqued than right now.
