You Just Wait: Powerpack Poem 4 - Any Tongue

I am back again with another poem inspired by Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong's  newest book, You Just Wait - A Poetry Friday Power Book. Today I am sharing the poem I wrote inspired by the Powerpack 4 prompt: Any Tongue: "Write a cinquain (or string a few cinquains together) featuring your favorite foods or foods you would like to try or places you would like to visit. As a reminder, a cinquain is a five-line unrhymed poem made of lines with two, four, six, eight, and two syllables (in that order). "

  1. This is my daughter's favorite soup! I don't think her grandmother ever made it, but we did! Lovely ending, Bridget.
