This week at dVerse, Anna has us experimenting with 3 different approaches to poetry…Reduction, Oulipo and Surprising Conceit. I chose to attempt a very simple Oulipo, where each each line is a single word, and each successive word is one letter longer. You will find a few different recipes for this soup online.Β  The photo above is my version….without beans.

    i wish those traditions were more sustainable…
    but i guess it comes to each family to pass along what they
    have to the next….

  5. Sometimes the best way to really live is a bowl of simple soup, in the company of people.
