Welcome to Poetics! Michelle (Mish) is our host for today.
We know the importance of using the five senses in our poetry and how it enriches the imagery for the reader. A scene of nature, for example becomes more alive with the scents of wildflowers wafting in the wind or the high pitched trill of a songbird. We use the senses regularly to describe a physical setting, person or concrete object. Presenting something abstract becomes a little more challenging.
What does blue taste like?
What is the texture of anger?
Describe the scent of contentment.
What are the sounds of perfection?
What does hope look like?

blood wet sheet
between the back
