Spice of Life

Cumin seeds or caraway in white spoon on wooden board

A bit of a poetry binge lately. This is an entry for #TankaTuesday #TheSpiceofLife #Poetry Challenge No. 309, 2/28/23.

This poem in the form of an American Cinquain.

Bold to speak through blankets
To stand in solidarity

The audacity of cumin to stand in the spice rack as a bitter thought, yet organize a well-balanced curry when called upon, can be seen as an act of bravery. It knows its value and remains in the rack until it’s ready to be used.
