I thought today’s challenge was easier than yesterday’s. Today the poem came to me like an idea that came out of nowhere but I certainly know where it did.
Day 8: Flavour. Elegy. Enumeratio
The challenge today was to write about flavour in a form of an elegy and it one wishes to by adding in enumeratio to the mix.
An elegy focuses on what was lost that is irreversibly gone and an enumeratio speaks for itself. Well, if it doesn’t; an enumeratio is about listing in its most basic form. And now what you are wanting to delve into is just below.
Well, here it is. As above, I can only remember what a good memory I had as a child not what it looked like or tasted but how it felt and the smell. When walking down the road and I smell it, I don’t know what, I go searching for it but to no avail. We all have that one thing we search for, that one memorable food we had once and never had again. This is a not-so-serious poem, so I hope you enjoyed reading it and it reminded you of what you had once 🙂
