The Poeming Pigeon:
A Literary Journal of Poetry

Vol 1, Issue 2
Poems about Food


Homer, The Poeming Pigeon mascot, has been hunting and pecking to gather the most delicious poetry for a new collection of poems from around the globe – all about food. Allow us to whet your appetite with an opening poem by Oregon Poet Laureate Emerita, Paulann Petersen, followed by a feast of verse that may not only make your mouth water, but your eyes well-up too. Food not only nourishes our body, it can feed our soul. What’s your favorite food? You just might find a poem about it inside this journal of poetry.
