I Can Write About Anything!  January 1, 1970 - January 1, 1970

Reading and Deliberating


The key word is "spinach!" I have never read a poem or short story about spinach, but so many people have strong feelings about it. I am giving you a challenge to write a new poem or short story, in one day, about this loved or hated leaf. It can be funny, sad, angry, etc. I will answer the challenge and write one myself, which will not be entered, of course.
