Saffron threads embroidered the afternoon sky
Long golden shadows stretched across
fields of heavily laden vines
Lemongrass fluttered in the warm breeze
And a butter ball sun slowly sank deep
into the cinnamon-sprinkled horizon

Merril is hosting D'Verse Poetics tonight and has given us a list of
Spices and Herbs. We were to choose three as inspiration for our poem
and we could use one of the given phrases as our title.
I chose Saffron, Lemongrass and Cinnamon plus Tuscan Sunset for my title.
