#TankaTuesday #TheSpiceofLife #Poetry Challenge No. 309, 2/28/23


🌢️ This week’s challenge is The Spice of Life: Choose a spice from your kitchen cabinet, and relate its flavor to an event that recently happened in your daily life. Write your syllabic poem! Bonusβ€”if you share a photo of the spice in your post. πŸŒΆοΈ

I have chosen a little string of Haiku one , 5,7,5. and three 3,5,3.

Ground from arbours bark
Nature’s gold dust milky sweet
Cinnamon delight.

Black bullets
Hot enough to sneeze
Clears your head.

White horses
Crystals from the sea
Life’s wages.

Gold or red
Along the spice root
Treasure taste
