Cinnamon Calls

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub: Meeting The Bar – “The Reason For Rhyme”
(posted by Walt) – Critique and Craft
The kinds of rhymes available to us are widely varied. They all serve a useful purpose in our daily expression and poemic endeavors. A suggestion: Continuing on the theme of the arrival of Autumn and my exploration of the senses (The Sound of Love), Use the idea of the scents or flavors of the Fall season, write your poems with an eye toward including some of these rhyming techniques.

For scent of cinnamon,
I will come in, stay
for awhile, smile, and hope
for a chance to sample
coffee cake or cookies.
If you want to win
my favor, flavor hot chocolate
with cinnamon and a pinch
of hot pepper. In my head,
Autumn is all to do with
russet leaves, stew,
and pumpkins on the vine,
knowing a pie will soon
be mine. Spiced cider
warms chill days of latter
Fall. Cozy up with cuddly
dogs, and know you have it all.
