What had the plums been planning
before they were eaten for breakfast?
How does the wheat kernel know
the best way to bake bread?
Is your microwaved alphabet soup
better at spelling than the innocent cat?
How can you harness the power of spring
to your grandfather’s cart?
Today I host the penultimate prompt for April at toads, inspired by Pablo Neruda’s book “the book of questions”.
que es mas macho: lightbulb, or school bus? (Laurie Anderson, Smoke Rings)
Ha… love it.
I absolutely love this! ❤️ Especially; “Is your microwaved alphabet soup better at spelling than the innocent cat?” 😀
I think the cat might be better actually
Ha! I love this. Light hearted and mos def gave me my first smile of the day.
Thank you… it’s fun to think about questions.
Now, these are questions to which I REALLY want to know the answers!
Nice work, this. And a laudable prompt; not one I’d normally undertake…Thanks.
I love these questions, especially the last,, 🙂
I like how each question uses abstract imagery.
There’s those plums again. WCW would just love it at Toads. The kernel doesn’t know squat, except that it’s gotten ungodly hot in here. Canned foods are notoriously unsuccessful at competitive bees, but so are cats. And tell Grampa to stay the hell off the Autobahn. Or so I read.
Ha.. I think that Grampa driving with the power of spring is a dangerous thing too.
Your questions are perfect!!
Great questions, Bjorn. My question:
Does the Toad prompting have his/her poem already drafted before making a prompt to fit?
For this one I had written the ditty a week plus ago ready for an Open Tuesday day upcoming when I might be time constrained.
I love these questions, especially the first one.
You are such a deviant. Given enough time, both will splatter heartbeats of unreadable letters all over Schrodinger’s walls.
Great questions- my fave is the first one!
This is so clever. It inspires me to write another question poem…I am definitely enjoying this prompt.
Isn’t it surprising the random questions that pass through your mind?
The questions are all so different and so quirky but perfect. I love them. And who KNEW Shay had all the answers?
I love this post, Björn! Are you sure you aren’t Dr Seuss come back to thrill us. Loved the first question.
