Food Obstacles

Written for:  Go Dog Go Cafe - Donna Matthew's challenge:
Poetry form:  "Ae Freislighe"

. Quatrain stanzas (4-line stanzas)
. 7 syllables per line
. Lines 1 and 3 rhyme together, but they rhyme as three syllables
. Lines 2 and 4 rhyme together as two syllables (xb)
. The final syllable, word, or line of the entire poem should be the
  same as the entire poem begins (the poetic term for this is dunadh)
Poem can be as concise as one stanza and scale out as far as a poet wishes to push it.

The sight was most surprising.
Meat bins were missing turkeys–
a shortage, I'm surmising.
I will not eat tofurkey.

Cannot find the cranberries.
by this time bags are displayed.
Hope guests will have sympathy
if we must eat out today.

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.
