The Perfect Hot Fudge Sundaes

Originally uploaded by teachergal

Bernard Friot gives readers a charge on Day 100 of The Aspiring Poet’s Journal to write a poem as a text message. Since I’m not a big text-er (and don’t pay for them), I thought this would be a challenge. My poem is about the hot fudge sundaes I created to ring in the new year. (Doesn’t sound exciting? Well, we had quite a bit of snow here in Providence, so we stayed in!)

Note: Starting next Friday, any original Poetry Friday Submissions I write will be housed at 365 Memories, Poems, and Slices of Life. Today it appears on both blogs. 🙂
