Fall-ing: dVerse Poetics

Today I had the pleasure of hosting dVerse Poetics. The prompt asked that we write a Pop Art poem. One characteristic of this school of art is to see art everywhere. I delight in displays of produce in supermarkets and farmer’s markets. A photo my husband took at a local farmer’s market served at the source of my inspiration:

Fall-
ing

Tonight
sluggish cricket songs
falter,
wail a mournful tune,
announce
the demise of summer.

Tomorrow
season’s final farmers’ market,
offerings
scant, I fear,
squash
green, yellow, orange.

Yesterday
summer ecstasy
shouting
“taste my intensity,”
flaunting
colors of an artist’s palette.

I hope you will stop by the Pub and enjoy a drink and some fine poetry: http://dversepoets.com

Please Note: It is my intention to visit everyone who submits a poem to this prompt. If you use blogger, I will need to direct you to my defunct Google blog and will include a link to WordPress since blogger is not accepting my comments. Just a reminder of why I switched to WordPress. Arrrgh!
