Today’s prompt: “…write a temperature poem.” I was on a winter track on this one at first, stuck on snowflakes, then completely shifted gears and thought of summer, popsicles, and the Good Humor man, until Goldilocks jumped into my head, and I couldn’t resist.
Her tastebuds tempted
In the end she was thwarted
By porridge too hot.
