Pass the Patchwork Poems, Please

It's time! Today until next Thursday, you are invited to post the patchwork poems you cooked up from other poet's food related poems.

Be sure to credit your muses! And this time, it's for real. I think published poets might be a little possessive of their words (aren't we all, though?).

Next Thursday, we're branching out a bit, so stop by and see what's new! As always, thanks for keeping Patchwork Poetry going!

We need a little more time to cook...

Hey all. Since we didn't have enough poems to work from this week, I am extending our poem gathering one more week.

This week, add a link to your favorite poem about food. This time around we're looking for poems by other poets. You know, the poets with books? The rich poets, writing perfect poems on their yachts, sipping drinks with umbrellas in them...wait, those aren't poets. Who are those people?

Come back next week, the 5th Thursday in May, to post your newly created patchwork poems.

PS: If you posted a food poem last week, would you mind posting again? Thanks!

This Week, a Potluck...Bring a Dish to Share

Third Thursday, folks! Time to pony up your poems. To switch things up a little, let's try offering up poems by other, published poets. Any poet you please. And how about if we try a theme? How about food poems? Cooking food, growing food, eating food...anything to do with food.

And while we're shaking the tree, why not invite a friend to join us this week? Anyone who brings along a new pal wins a steaming hot casserole. Just kidding of course, how would you mail a casserole?

So, all this week, post liks to your favorite food poems. Come back next Thursday and post links to your newly created patchwork poems!

Patchwork Poems, Please!

Second Thursday in May. Time to post links to the fabulous poems you created from other people's lines.

You can write as many patchwork poems as you like. Post them here all week. Next Thursday, we'll offer up some more grist for the mill. (You can take the girl out of the mill-town, but you can't take the mill out of the girl, I guess....)

Please be sure to credit your muses!

1st Thursday! Pony Up Your Poems!

Hi all! I am posting this week's call for poems a bit early, as I will be traveling Wednesday and waiting in the hospital while my father has surgery on Thursday.

From now until next Thursday, you are invited to post your poems for other poets' use. Thursday, May 7th, come back and post your newly created patchwork poems.

Remember, we try to stay as true to the cento, or patchwork form, as possible. Please try to use whole lines. Our aim here is not to inspire trains of thought, but to rearrange the trains our fellow poets have already hitched. How's that for a convoluted metaphor?

Since this is a couple days early, please be sure, if you haven't already, to check the post below for links to everyone's patchwork poems on display this week.

Happy writing!
