Sound of Peppermint Bottle

Still life, Peppermint Bottle
Cézanne looks; I hear
peppermint bottle

chocolate block
red toffee apple
clip clippety clop

rubber plantation
prelude to power
carnation, lactation

molten glass
tube
salt spray, Esperance

butter batter bitter with a squeeze of lemon

savouring words
sound and association

NudderNote: When I was a scruffy school kid I used to write down my favourite words. I think chocolate was at the top of the list (ahhh what a consonant and vowel combination; plus an association with a textured and tasty treat that I was rarely allowed to eat 😉 ). I have also always loved the word Pluto 😍 so I am enjoying all the Pluto news at the moment.

Do you have favourite words?

  1. A delicious, synaesthetic, onomatopoeic poem. I also love ‘molten’ and ‘butter’. And ‘diabolical’, ‘shimmer’, ‘liquid’ and ‘quark’. A friend loves ‘rhododendron’. 🙂
