Most poets are foodies and most foodies are poets. It kind of goes hand in hand if you ask me. Being a foodie has nothing to do with the ability to cook (although many can). Being a foodie is just being able to enjoy great foods prepared in many ways. If you scour our blog roll and the poetry blogging community as a whole you will notice that there is many a poet who also dabbles with food blogs or something similar. So this week with the help of Makhi we have decided to tease and tempt the taste buds and stomachs of the poets who frequent this site. What better temptation than chocolate?
MMMMM chocolate just saying and thinking about it makes my mouth actually water. I am partial to the cherry cordial. I just love biting into a yummy chocolate cream filled nugget. The simple taste of pure chocolate is multiplied the second the cherry and cream burst into your mouth. OK I should stop or I might end up sounding like a Danielle Steele novel.
This week write about chocolate. It could be the stale chocolates found at grandma’s house or the fact that your little brother always bit the heads off of you hollow chocolate bunny every Easter (I hold no grudges). Maybe you remember a lover who bribed you with chocolates or a Valentine day with Strawberries dipped in chocolate. Maybe you just want to finally get to swim in that river of chocolate you watched on Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory as a kid. Whatever it is you think of and write about, use chocolate in some way.
This may not be the easiest Think Tank we have done but at least I know it will be the tastiest. Give it try and then share it with us. We can wait to see what we bite into with the selection of chocolate poems and prose you will provide us this week.
