Let's Get Salty (posted by WhimsyGizmo)

"Today, I want you to sprinkle the word salt into your poems. Whether you make it the seasoned center, or just dash a smidge of it in at the last minute, just be sure some form of the word salt adds a little zing to your piece: Salty. Saltine. Salting. Saltlick. Saltatory."

Himalayan salt lamps
glow fiery orange in
darkness.  It is said
lamps should not be
turned off; they repel
negative ions.  

I love pink crystals
of Himalayan salt.

Fond memory–
my sister clutching
her green and white
rabbit, Salty. He never
touched the stuff.

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.
