August Ice Cream Cone
~ Paul B. Janeczko
It's only two words long, but this poem (along with its title) conveys a lot. I read it and in my mind I can see the ice cream, melting in the sunshine. I can feel the heat of the day, the stickiness of the cone, and the cold on my tongue. I can hear giggles and smacks of satisfaction. I can taste the creamy, minty goodness. (In my mind, it's a chocolate chip mint cone.) What comes to your mind when you read it?
Do you think you could write a two-word poem that would paint an image in someone's mind? If you do write one, please share it -- I'd love to read it! :)
