I've given Laura Jayne permission to use pictures from my picture blog (and this blog) on Pictures, Poetry & Prose. She recently used this picture:

I've become quite interested in the ancient art of Haiku. It's not just your 5-7-5 prose anymore, like back in elementary school. There are tons of rules and variations of said rules, many of which contradict each other. I thought I'd take my first crack at Haiku with this picture. The winner, by the way, was Marc, who wrote a beautiful piece that evoked many wonderful childhood memories. I've begun following Marc's blog, Daily Writing Practice, to help me get my writing groove on.

Our prompt: "Write a poem with a chocolate theme."
My submission:

* * *

heavenly cocoa
melts sensuously on lips
hips widen

Dear god, why must that picture look so amazing at 8:30 something in the morning. I wish that was on my desk right now... love your poem!

Love it! Chocolate is worthy of poetry for sure! Hips widen, sad but true for most of us!
