Paint Chip Poetry Prompt #8

I can’t believe it’s time for paint chip prompt #8. Of course, I can’t believe it’s almost the end of February either. Where does the time go? Perhaps in a parallel universe it doesn’t fly by so quickly.

Which brings me to today’s prompt. I’d love to read about a parallel universe of your imagination. No need to use the words parallel or universe in your poem, but please use at least three of the following words or phrases: pinot noirsour grapes, radical, marigold, watermelon, pink pearl, and blush.

Here’s my poem:

Where Gardens Grow Wild

There’s a place I know
Where gardens grow wild
And sour grapes are used
To make perfect pinot noir

There’s a place I know
Where watermelon seeds
Grow pink pearl onions
That flavor a radical stew

There’s a place I know
Where marigolds bloom
And honey bees blush when
Buzzing a garden gone wild

Your Turn

Okay, now it’s your turn to imagine a parallel universe and share it in the comments below. You can post your poem directly in the comments, or give a link to where you poem is posted on your own blog. Extra points if you use all the words like I did.

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. Confronting a Parallel Universe

    A parallel universe would be something to behold
    Exploring alternate possibilities would never grow old
    One might at first show reluctance to venture about
    As every day you are confronted with a brand new route
    Where sour grapes are turned into luscious pinot noir
    And bright colored marigold fields abound near and far
    A universe paralleling ours may seem quite radical
    Although a pink pearl from sand can be just as magical

    But what of our loved ones, will they be there too
    Or will we be forced to start over and find someone new
    My current life, loves, and relationships I hope will stay
    In this universe, bad days and nightmares are kept at bay
    Love and happiness is really all that I’m after
    I have all that now so that is my answer
    Intriguing as it seems, a parallel universe I do not seek
    Because my life in this one, is the one I shall keep
