Summer lingers: a few green leaves the colour of basil and fennel seed in thyme-scented September hedges; a flurry of saffron around the edges of a stilted, shrivelled sunflower; unharvested corn, a dirty ochre, and moon-yellow unmown grass gild autumn. A mural of flavour, a kaleidoscope of colour.

Tuesday has come around again and this week’s Poetics at the dVerse Poets Pub is hosted by Merril, who is spicing things up with a list of twenty-five herbs, spices, flavours, and spice combinations from A to Z. She would like us to pick at least three for our poems, more if we so desire, and we can use words or phrases for our titles.
