Keats famously wrote an Ode on a Grecian Urn. Vandal. These days he wouldn't get away with it. I used to live just round the corner -well, about five corners, I think, to be pedantic- from his house, but that's another story. Anyway, to keep to the point. This week's challenge is to write a poem on something. Literally. Here, by way of an example, is my contribution, Ode on a Banana:
And here's another one, which I made earlier. Well, quite a lot earlier, like 12 years. It's called Banana Haiku for Cait Collins. This is a copy. I ate the original:
And I used to live up the road from Freud. Now there's a coincidence. (Readers may have spotted a second challenge here: which street in which city did I used to live in? Employees, relatives and anyone else who knows the answer already are not permitted to enter!)
So, to reiterate: the Poetry Bus Challenge this week is to write a poem on something, literally. Scan or photograph the result and post it. If those options are not available to you, you can simply post the poem and tell us what it's on, but if you can scan/photograph it, please do!
And, of course, when you've finished, please leave a link to your contribution in the comments below and I'll post a list.
