Poetry Friday -- Pineapple





















Thank you Evelyn (via Jone) for this tasty pineapple poem.

For you, readers, I offer this recipe for bliss:

Over cubes of fresh pineapple, drizzle dark molasses, then sprinkle with the zest of one lime. Let it sit as long as you are able to resist the sweet tropical scent, then indulge. You may never eat plain pineapple again!

Now, head over to Jama's Alphabet Soup, where chocolate chip cookies and the Poetry Friday Roundup await you!

  3. Molasses over pineapple? Really? I'm going to have to try that over some of Evelyn's precious pineapples...which I also like!

  4. Mary Lee, I like your recipe for bliss. It sounds yummy. (Do you have a picture of the clouds to accompany your poem for Nature Nurtures 2020?

  7. I love how you shared this poem! A friend from Jone's school shared a really fun dog poem with me. I wanted to write a thank you note, but don't have any way of getting it to the child before fall, which is a long way away!

  8. Yum, but I think you and Evelyn left off "blend with rum and serve over ice with a slice of lime." **snort**

  11. Perfect pineapple poem to share today, wholly appreciated by your Hawaii-born PF host. And that recipe! It sounds like something you'd pour over sweet sour pork. :)

  13. My mouth is watering -- I need to make this recipe! All of the "p" sounds in Evelyn's poem make me think of a pineapple's sweet/sour pucker.

  14. What a sweet poem and a fabulous illustration! Young poets are the best! Your recipe also sounds amazing-- I'm a HUGE molasses fan :) and love the idea of combining it with lime and pineapple. I've already made a note of it and can't wait to give it a try.

  15. Don’t you just want to go and buy some pineapples? The recipe sounds delish. Disney just release their recipe of the pineapple twist. Delectable.

  23. Um...delicious! I'm going to have to try that. I have molasses sitting in the cupboard wondering when it's going to be used again! This poem is delightfully delicious. I also love the form of wonderful repetition in "precious pineapple." -- Christie @ https://wonderingandwondering.wordpress.com/

  24. Fun postcard! I love how colorful it is. Fresh pineapple is one of my weird pregnancy casualties (for lack of a better description). I loved it before I was pregnant, but since having kids I'm terribly allergic. It ties my stomach in knots. I wonder if your recipe would be almost as tasty with canned pineapple?
