Poetry Prompt #146

It’s Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day!

Summer and ice cream go together. What kind of ice cream is your favorite? Vanilla? Chocolate? Razzle Dazzle? Tutti-Frutti? Moose Tracks? Peanut Butter and Jelly?

What do you choose if you go to an ice cream stand? If you made up a new flavor, what kind would it be? No combination is off limits…at least not until it’s taste tested.

What’ll it be: mashed potato ice cream, beer ice cream, olive oil ice cream, buffalo wing ice cream, goat cheese ice cream, or candied bacon ice cream? Yum!

An ode is a short poem praising something. In celebration of National Creative Ice Cream Flavors Day (Yes, it’s a real thing, celebrated every July 1st), write an ode to your favorite ice cream or to a flavor you wish existed.

Make us taste it, feel it, want it! Make our mouths water!

I’ll take two scoops, please!

Set your timer for 7 minutes

Don’t think about it too much; just do it!

Start writing!
