#OctPoWriMo – Day 27 – Ghazal – “Scent Divine” #amwriting #poetry 


Day 27 Prompt: Favorite Scent

“Fragrance is a powerful thing. It can bring you back to your favorite meal your mother used to make, to your first kiss, to any number of events in your life. Free write for 10 minutes and see where your nose leads you, if your words need some encouragement, walk outside, down the street, through a mall, through a forest until your nose reminds you and the words begin to flow.”

Scent of cinnamon, apple pie freshly made, divine,

Fresh bread, spice cookies, shortbread, chocolate craved divine

——

Easter ham glazed with pineapple rings, smoked, homemade.

Perogies, bacon, onion, soft sating divine

——

Walking outside after it rains, pine scent invades

Deep breath, acrid wonderful smell nature divine

——-

Puppies and kitties, newborn babes, a scent persudes

Love, care for, feed and adore, keep safe those divine. 

——–

Incense in churches, candles burning, chants disuade

Wine strong, broken bread, prayers with coffee wake the divine

Ghazal: 

“A Ghazal is a poem that is made up like an odd numbered chain of couplets, where each couplet is an independent poem. It should be natural to put a comma at the end of the first line. The Ghazal has a refrain of one to three words that repeat, and an inline rhyme that preceedes the refrain. Lines 1 and 2, then every second line, has this refrain and inline rhyme, and the last couplet should refer to the authors pen-name… The rhyming scheme is AA bA cA dA eA etc.”

Photography 101 – Day 9 – Warmth by Candle Light


Warmth can be appreciated by anyone and any living creature. We all search for something to keep us warm and/or give us light at one time or another. Think about puppies and kittens or baby animals of any kind who pile on top of each other and burrow underneath one another just to be warm.

A candle as I showed in my day 1 picture can represent a sense of home but also radiate that sense of warmth that home gives. Home is hearth and fire as I said. And in this picture the candle is lit showing a fantastic sense of warmth and adding that to a sense of home and togetherness.
