sweet & tart
on my tongue
kiss me again
Inspiration for this piece: First came the dVerse Poets Pub prompt for Meet the Bar, which asked to write with any and/or all senses except sight. I tried closing my eyes and seeing what might erupt...but I was lost.... Second, this week I ran across at least two poems that had pomegranates in them; it's been awhile since I tasted this delightful fruit. Since discovering it a couple years ago, I admit I've been infatuated with it... Anyway, these two things led to this piece. Not really 100% sure I hit the mark for the prompt; and am well aware that without the title, this could take on a whole different meaning, but....
A note on form: Apparently I've been a short form mood lately. This, like my last post, is a septolet. A cute little number that I've enjoyed exploring in the past particularly through twitter.
An aside: So, seeing as the poem was inspired by a prompt where sight was not to play a role , I chose to type out this piece above. I have, however, also tweeted the original version, which was developed with an app called poetics. This combined words (visually like magnetic poetry) with images. Can you guess what image lay behind this poem?
