OctPoWriMo Day 7


I am participating in two challenges this month, OctPoWriMo and Inktober. To make it easier on myself, I’m trying to write a new poem on odd-numbered days and make a drawing on even-numbered days.

Today’s prompt is Tongue, Tasting and Speaking. The suggested form is tongue twister.

The Tortured Tongue

Tongue torturing, tasting, tantilizing
Sweet and sour, spicy and saucy
Bitter biter, bracken and broken
Hurting, healing, holding, beholden

Asparagus artichoke apple appetizer
Fortified frozen frankfurters fibrillating
Waxen wieners winking wine
Gasping grapes on vintage vine

Jelly jugular jumping jams
Purple plums, plump peppery peas
Cold cotton cordial corncob
Dark doggy dandy doorknob

Opulent operatic octopus Oz
Quaking query questioning quote
Mother mutton muttering mama
Loving lullaby lazy llama

Heartfelt history heavy handed
Racketeering registered rocket
Every electric election electron
Icicle iris intrinsic inspection

Kidding kitten kicking kitchen
Ugly umbrella unbearable umbrage
Yellow yucky yawning yak
Zillow willow whistle whack
