A Piece of Pie

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - Prompt #324
"Just One Word"

"Take the title of another poet's poem, changing
just one word to write a completely different poem.

I wish I had a piece of pie,
lemon meringue, smooth and tangy,
or graham cracker-crusted key lime.
I wish I had a piece of pie.
Southern pecan would be sublime.
Warm peach A la mode could be dandy.
I wish I had a piece of pie,
lemon meringue, smooth and tangy.

(taken from "A Piece of Mind" by Benjamin Thomas)

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
