berry, banana and apple smoothies

I’m celebrating National Poetry Month by writing and reading poetry, every day.

For writing inspiration, I decided to write from a list I made last month of 30 things that make me happy. One each day of the month.

Today, day seven: berry, banana and apple smoothies


searching for the cool
I open the freezer door
air billows meeting

the heat of my face
caressing my nose, cheeks, ears
I stand soaking up

artificial frost
seeking the bag of berries
a sweet tart jumble

balanced by creamy
too sweet banana apple
liquifies the blend

day 7, national poetry month, 2021

  1. As I read the beginning and visualized you in front of the freezer, I could hear my dad (in my head) hollering about closing that freezer door. No savoring the frosty air in my house allowed. The smoothie sounds like a perfect antidote to a hot body. 🙂

  2. Yum! I’ve got to start reading your poems in the morning. You make me hungry.

    Each stanza made me feel like I was right there with you through every step.
