Chinese New Year is just around the corner. 2011 is the Year of the Rabbit and it begins on February 3rd, 2011. For today’s prompt, let yourself be inspired by that celebration or anything Chinese. You can choose a rabbit if you like. You might want to browse the net for inspiration or, as I did, go to a local Chinese restaurant and write your poem with eyes wide open. Here’s mine.
Chinese New Year
catch a ride
on the hostess’ bodice.
You shave splinters from your chopsticks and
watch the waiter caress pancakes
with plum sauce.
Please consider adding a link to your poem in the comments of this post. Thank you.
