Hey there all you cool cats and diggety dogs.
It’s my Day Twenty-Seven entry of NanoPoblano AKA National Blog Posting Month (but with a truckful bunch of spicy peppery peeps known as Cheer Peppers) and I’m back with another slice of poetic pie to chow down on.
I’ve worked on a very short form this time round, so have decided to forgo the usual Facebook performance video.
My inspiration for this particular piece was from the OctPoWriMo prompt for their Day 27 and the use of flowers. I wanted to write something both elegant and seductive.
I also took a mosey on back to Shadow Poetry and picked a nice, simple form called a 7/5 Trochee (the structure is 7/5/7/5 syllables across two stanzas) and you can look at in further detail regarding it’s structure/rules here:-
Also, since I such a decent sort, here are some other alternative prompts to help you jam and boogie with your own poetry ups and downs:-
And finally here is my poem in written form, which is the only for you are getting, since there is no accompanying video but what a pretty sight it is 🙂

Rhombic roots rotate rosettes
Full, fenestrated fleurettes
Jazzy joy, jewels
Oblique, ornate operas
Still want more? It’s time for a little overtime then! How about some other Day Twenty-Seven posts by talented ladies and men who are also participating in the Pepper challenge throughout the month of November 🙂
