NapoWriMo Day Six: Food

Todays challenge is to write a poem about food. This could be a poem about a particular food, or about your relationship to food in general. Or it could simply be a poem relating an incident that involves food, like David Ignatow’s “The Bagel”. Still not convinced? Perhaps these thirteen food poems will give you some inspiration. Happy writing!

We need it for growth, repair, and for energy

We can find it mostly on the land or it’s living in the sea

We eat it for pleasure, and comfort, and some can enhance your mood

We can survive so long on water but we all need food

We can roast, boil, fry, and bake, steam, grill, or stew

It can be something that you’ve raised from birth, or something that you’ve grew

Everybody loves it, a gift from the gods

From shrimps from the ocean to little peas in pods

There are fruits of all colours, sizes, and shapes

From phallic shaped bananas, to small spherical grapes

Vegetables too, come in a wide variety

Potatoes, leeks, and carrots, and greens like broccoli

We get cuts of meat from cows and sheep, to name but a few

Some people like them cooked certain ways, while others like them blue

We get fish from the oceans, or even from a river

Others prefer eating offal, combining onions with their liver

There are pulses, nuts, grains, and beans

Salmon, oysters, mackerel, and sardines

Pumpkins, marrows, tomotoes, and peas

Then dairy like yoghurts, cream, butter, and cheese

I could go on with this list but that’s enough from me

All this talk of food has made me quite hungry!
