THE SILVER SPOON

THE SILVER SPOON

A Poem by Ann

It was a hot, hot afternoon
And I ran through the kitchen 
In search of a spoon
A silver spoon.

I ran a wild goose chase
Turning the kitchen upside down
And the chase became an eventful phase
Of that burning hot afternoon.

I bumped into my Papa
Marring frowns on his stern face
And I slumped onto my Mama
Staining her frilly lace.

The tiny kitchen seemed big and
I seemed to be searching an entire universe
For a spoon of silver significance
In my relatively insignificant life.

Very well written poem Neetha. I am grateful to you for sending me your works to review & it is my pleasure to go through such amazing piece of writing. I got nostalgic running down my childhood memories- the result of your magical poem.

I like it definitely since I felt a childish sense in it in a good way. I like how you play with words and I am guessing the silver spoon is a metaphor of something that could make your life have a significance on its sense.

"I ran a wild goose chase" - I can really imagined it very well.

Keep writing. :)
