NaPoWriMo: Unequal Bittersweet Feelings!

Published 20th April 2014 by viewsofpreethib

Day 20: Today’s optional prompt. This is a bit silly, but it’s Saturday. I recently got a large illustrated guide to sea shells. There are some pretty wild names for sea shells. Today I challenge you to take a look at the list of actual sea shell names below, and to use one or more of them to write a poem. Your poem doesn’t have to be about sea shells at all — just inspired by one or more of the names.
Peruvian Hat,
Snout Otter Clam,
Strawberry Top
Incised Moon,
Sparse Dove,

False Cup-and-Saucer
Leather Donax,
Shuttlecock Volva,
Striped Engina
Tricolor Niso,
Triangular Nutmeg,
Shoulderblade Sea Cat
Ghastly Miter,
Heavy Bonnet,
Woody Canoebubble,
Tuberculate Emarginula,
Lazarus Jewel Box,
Unequal Bittersweet,
Atlantic Turkey Wing.

Unequal Bittersweet Feelings!

Your love was a Strawberry Top,
On my favourite ice-cream,
Was what I had always imagined…..

Memories of you have left me,
With unequal bittersweet feelings,
Tell me will you come back and rectify it…..
