Poetry Challenge Day 3…”Winter Charm”

So, I went to check for today’s poetry challenge on NaPoWriMo’s site and had a look at their prompt…”as the third day of NaPoWriMo, I challenge you to write a charm – a simple rhyming poem, in the style of a recipe-slash-nursery rhyme. It could be a charm against warts, or against traffic tickets.”

Here is my Charm poem ~ 😀

“Winter Charm”

Take two cups sand from a tropical beach

three hibiscus petals: pink, red and peach,

add five gallons water from the Caribbean sea

and one palm frond from a coconut tree.

Mix it all together on a cold winter’s night

in two days you’ll receive a ticket for a Caribbean flight!

  1. Hello fellow NaPoWriMo-er and fellow cold Britoner…. I really hope this one works, in London we also currently have the joy of smog… it’s like we’ve gone back a couple of hundred years.

    • Hello PookyH!
      Hahah, I’m trying to source a coconut palm frond as we “speak”. 😀
      Yes, I’ve been listening the news about the smog! SMH! Crazy! I need to get cracking on my charm ingredients.

  2. I tried substituting sea salt mixed with water (in lieu of the Caribbean sea water) and nothing happened. I don’t understand why it didn’t work – it’s “sea salt”. It says so right there on the package…

    beautiful…the visual was bright and touched the imagination with warmth…
