NAPOWRIMO ~ Day 19 ~ O' Thou Spicy Triangular Nutmeg ~

Today I challenge you to take a look at the list of actual sea shell names below, and to use one or more of them to write a poem. You poem doesn’t have to be about sea shells at all — just inspired by one or more of the names.

O' Spicy Triangular Nutmeg

O Nutmeg  Spice sprouting from the
grand root tree
like sweet honey caramel to the core
some say thou art a sea shell but are you?
so red and not white or green or sea blue?
O Nutmeg nostalgia surrounds as I
float back in time to 'the little nut tree'
nothing would it bear,but a silver nutmeg
and a golden pear'
It was the King of Spain's daughter
not Clementine, who came to visit
'and all for the sake of the little nut tree'
I wonder if the silver nutmeg was spicy?
but for all the nuts it was special for
it brought royalty'
O Nutmeg thou art special too
On day 19 of Napowrimo chosen
from the silver tree to poetic Oceans
