A Poet Paints A Bowl Of Salad

Poem inspired by William Carlos Williams poetic masterpiece, “This Is Just To Say.”

I have tossed strawberries,
rinsed romain lettuce
and torn them into bite size pieces for good measure,
I have topped the bowl
with a generous sprinkling of fresh mint
emerald green in appearance,
I know you prefer raspberry vinegar
so, I went to the market and bought a bottle in advance
along with blueberries
arresting as the April sky, now all that’s left
is feta cheese
without which the salad would be incomplete.
Forgive me
I am rather embarrassed that I didn’t save you any,
it was heavenly.
