NaPoWriMo #10

This one was written using Robert Peake's prompt at Readwritepoem.

He gave a list of words of which we were to incorporate twelve, along with something from another poem that didn't pan out (the chestnuts), something that tastes terrible (I'm sure that a number of things in this poem would taste terrible, if I was foolish enough to try it - the dried seed pod, maybe), and a sound that makes you happy (the chestnuts again).

Okay, I'm being a bit loose on the taste there, but I think I met the rest of the requirements. I'm not wildly excited by this piece but I feel as if I'm getting back on track after yesterday's disastrous piece (which will probably disappear from the blog at the end of the month).

(All NaPoWriMo poems have now been removed for possible editing and submissions. Contact me if you would like to read them.)

The required words simply disappeared into the beauty of your piece, seamlessly. Very ethereal and warm verse -- I really liked it...

This is one I'll read aloud later to my family. You made this prompt look so easy. I really liked it.

I love the way it focuses on the minor and expands to the major - the last verse is especially beautifu. The word 'clatter' is perfect.
