Today's prompt is to "write a poem that incorporates each of the senses." The cinquain seems fitting since there are five senses, but it has only five lines, and I had more to say. So each of the five stanzas in today's poem is a cinquain.


I see
Art surrounds me,
Beauty encircles me.
Ask and receive; look and you’ll find

I hear
Everything sings;
Music is everywhere.
Listen! You will hear it as well:

I smell
Snow in the air,
The crisp scent of autumn,
Apples and pumpkins and spices,

I taste
Pumpkin, turkey,
Sweet potatoes, and pie;
Candy apples and pumpkin spice:

I feel
Chill in my bones,
Warm fire roaring bright,
My lover’s warm lips on my skin:
