Not Quite an Ode to a Silly Possession

I’m joining in this month’s Open Write over at Ethical ELA. Today Denise Krebs encouraged us to write an ode, or other poetic form, inspired by a childhood love – It is National Play-Doh and Cinnamon Raisin Toast Day after all!

I’m not sure
how I came
to want you
quite possibly
a connection to
my love of the
TV show
The Flying Nun
but none-the-less
I asked for you
as a gift for
My First Communion
An extravagant ask
to my parents
of little means
You graced my bureau then,
as now,
a reminder of
silly wishes
childhood giggles
and my need to
hold on to things
that collect dust!
