Poetry Prompts Day 6 – OctPoWriMo 2016 – tantalising

the tang of the luscious exotic dishes
dishes on display and others being cooked
cooked to tantalise our senses as we walk
walk to tables set in a row and we looked

tempting as it was, I didn’t grab them
them in my desire to try and taste
taste that’s more tantalising – a pulled pork
pork adobo and menudo – that’s aced

Richard appreciated the bakeries and the pastries
pastries and the smell of fresh bread and the coffee
coffee, as well as the sight of the tantalising meat cuts
cuts them up and taste them and fills up his trolley

the butter taste was rich and tantalising while the
the velvetiness of the fresh cream and yoghurt mix
mix was balanced by a kick of almond and sultana
sultana – ah, that did it for me as I get my sweet fix*

* Loop Poetry is a poetry form created by Hellon. There are no restrictions on the number of stanzas nor on the syllable count for each line. In each stanza, the last word of the first line becomes the first word of line two, last word of line 2 becomes the first word of line 3, last word of line 3 becomes the first word of line 4. This is followed for each stanza. The rhyme scheme is abcb.
