One Hundred Reasons Why . . .

Today marks the 100th 7-Minute Poetry Challenge! A 100-hand round of applause to those of you who’ve tried any—all—of the prompts. (All the prompts are posted & waiting if you’d like to give them a go or take a look back.)

If ours were a kindergarten class, we would each have brought a hundred of one ingredient: toothpicks, cotton balls, acorns, M&Ms … and mixed them all up into some marvelous creation—trail mix or a wreath, a Fruit Loop necklace. As our focus is poetry, let’s do it with words.

It’s berry season! The Kingston Trio sang a song called “Raspberries, Strawberries” that you can watch here:

Which kind of berries are your favorite? I love blueberries and strawberries—especially in a strawberry rhubarb pie. I love walking through wild strawberries and smelling the sweet smell underfoot. And scratches are worthwhile for raspberries warmed by the sun.

Write a poem about berries—any kind, any form. I bet it will be sweet!
