Kiss (mother version)

This past week, Big Tent Poetry had us write a list poem. I chose to write a list of words I’ve never (that I can recall) used in a poem. They are fine words and I’ve been challenged to use them all in a wordle. That would be quite a feat–there are 26 of them, one from each letter of the alphabet, but…

For today’s prompt, I’d like you to choose one (or more if it suits you) of these word to use it the title or theme of a poem. To see the words, you can link up to the poem at

Here’s my effort:


A Haiku

Sticky fingers—jam

(cherry). Now lick your lips, dear,

then you can kiss me.

    Wonderfully evocative! Just as a haiku should be with a whole story and scene in so few words.
