Succulently Sweet Pumpkin Pie (Epulaeryu)

“The finest poetry
     is the most feigning.”
           —William Shakespeare


Smelling scent soothe my soul
Sits in sleek oven
Simmering Jack-O-Lantern
Smile so nicely
Saliva pours for
Sweet pumpkin
Pie!

    Another scumptuous poem, Joseph!:) I love pumpkin pie, though I have stopped trying to make them. Yeah, they were delicious, however, no matter how hard I tried they would end up looking like "Jack-O-Lantern"s. They'd puff up high in the middle..the kids found them funny.:( Nonetheless, they enjoyed every bite.:) I'm happy you liked "August Rush"..I cried at the end, only because I had found it so touching.:) Wishing you and yours the best, Joseph..God bless you!

    Hi Joseph- I like the beginning of every line with 'S'. The mixture of alliteration and metaphors is very appealling. I can feel the taste of food. I love pies!! Well written. Blessings and love, Chitra
