Mondays Will Be Different: Sweet Little Nothings

So, I’ve phased out my #Micropoetry Mondays.  Life has been getting more intense, so I decided to scale back from writing five short poems a week to one short poem a week.

And voila!  My new Monday feature, “Dove Chocolate-inspired poetry,” was born.


I’d never heard of “found poetry” till I took a college level poetry class, the definition of which can be found here:

I began finding (if not looking) for poetry in unlikely places, and, being the dark chocolate lover I am, noticed the cute little sayings inside the Dove candy wrapper foils, thinking, I could do something with these, so I began posting these short poems to Instagram (while I had a phone, anyway).

It was perfect. I already had the graphic–I just had to provide the text.  It is in this way that the poems practically write themselves.

She had them put their devices down
to get a CLUE over some CHESS pie.
MOM had the MONOPOLY on sociability that night,
taking a RISK by shaking things up.
When they all made plans for another night,
she saw it hadn’t been a TRIVIAL PURSUIT.
