Write into Vegetables

- from, The Artichoke, by Pablo Neruda

The artichoke
With a tender heart
Dressed up like a warrior,
Standing at attention, it built
a helmet.

Take a stroll through a market's produce section. Think about an artichoke from Neruda's view. Add your perspective. 

Discover a vegetable you've never met. Name it.

How might you address it in an ode?  Would it respond?

Bring in the colors, flavors and comments of other vegetables near it.  

Write about ways you use vegetables in a recipe for fun. 

Add a dash of mystery after writing about shapes, textures and succulence.
