Caveman

This is not a cookie
but a sesame dream
who opens to Scheherazade’s
caves within caves
where ends are beginnings
and dreams are sweeter than rain,
and you reach for the jar
grab a cookie again,
devouring delusions of dreams
until the cookies are gone.

My homemade sesame licorice cookie

Today we write Object poetry with Mish at dVerse.

  1. A cookie that takes you into an alternate world of dreams, it seems. Licorice and sesame….such an interesting combination.

  2. “devouring delusions of dreams” is so intriguing a concept. Maybe one root of eating addictions? Never thought of licorice and sesame seeds as a combo for a cook. Imagining they taste like gingersnaps…

  3. Holy wow, that looks good.

    “who opens to Scheherazade’s
    caves within caves
    where ends are beginnings
    and dreams are sweeter than rain”

    How gorgeous.

  4. You did it brother, you rocked the prompt as I knew you would. An interesting (albeit difficult) prompt. “dreams sweeter than rain”…wowzer.

  5. Scheherazade’s cave within caves, where the dreams are sweet as rain. Have another sesame dream!

  7. I must surrender to the ineffable truth of this rhapsody. A truly mouth-watering piece of confection sweeps me into a dreamy state as well. Alas, a temporary one.

  8. You know, I don’t know why, but I love that you used an object that’s temporary – that is somehow counterintuitive for me… and it worked so darn’d well!

    I love this poem 🙂
