Poetry Friday -- CAKE-KU - a cake pop haiku



CAKE-KU

Planet on a stick,
I orbit, hungry --
a drooling comet.

© Mary Lee Hahn


Poem #13, National Poetry Month 2012

This poem was written in collaboration with Franki. She made the cake pops for a gathering at her home last night, and she "donated them" to my poem-a-day project, along with providing the title and poetry form for today's poem. Thanks, Franki!!!


Anastasia has the Poetry Friday roundup today at Booktalking.

  2. They look beautiful! And I'm not drooling so early this am, but might be later in the day if I look again. Love that 'planet on a stick'.

  6. Cake-ku reminds me of pie-ku. (Remember that? Scroll down http://tabathayeatts.blogspot.com/2010/09/autumn-giveaway.html )

  7. Love it!! You so took the physical and made it fun with words. Great use of cake-pops! Personally, I just ate mine when I got home. A little sorry I didn't take another. Drooling as I looked at your picture / read your poem. So fun!

  9. "I orbit, hungry" that is brilliant! Love that even cake pops can be the center of a poem.

  11. So funny! You would not have had to put a picture of Franki's cake pops here as it is exactly what I pictured when I read your words. Little planets on a stick. Yum!
