November Sweet-song

Writer's Digest PAD Challenge; day 10

For today’s prompt, write a poem incorporating something sweet. Maybe a cake or pie. Possibly a candy bar or pixie stick (you know, that paper straw with delicious sugar inside–mmm). Or move it sweetly in another direction.





Sometimes in November
I keenly crave
The salt-sweet kiss
Of sun-sparkle bliss
Rushing
In aquamarine wave

Sometimes in November
I lonesome-ly long
For the slow
Syrupy cadence
Of willow-sigh
And locust song

Sometimes in November
I patiently pine
For a mulled merlot
Of long ago
Sweet
Summer-tinted wine

Sometimes in November
I quietly yearn
For what will be
What is
And what will
Never again return

 Sometimes in November I'm restless with reluctant realization that the sweetness of another year is nearly spent...
