Seguidilla

Hello Poetry Lovers

Today we feature the Seguidilla, a Spanish poetic form with 7 lines. It goes in syllables of 7-5-7-5-5-7-5. I found this one hard work but had to share it with you, read on;

Seguidilla

I stir my homemade curry 

Fenugreek and seeds 

Its pungency cloaks the air

And fills all my needs 

No more takeaways

When we would go collect it 

In those salad days 

I need the memory and

Our takeaway 

 That now sells coffee 

Come and visit me

And see for yourself 

How our special world has changed

But I’m still myself
