Sound of Peppermint Bottle
Still life, Peppermint Bottle
Cézanne looks; I hear
red toffee apple
clip clippety clop
prelude to power
salt spray, Esperance
butter batter bitter with a squeeze of lemon
sound and association

NutherNote: I got the idea of this poem from blogging artist extraordinaire Aletha Kuschan. She is a big Cézanne fan and had been inspired by a detail in his Peppermint Bottle to paint apples. Thanks Aletha 🙂
AndNutherNote: 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 😉 ).
Do you have favourite words?
