Illusion

Steam wraps my face like velvet
Cinnamon scents rise
Window pane stained with droplets
Forecast again lied
My lips search for spice
But no flavor can be found
Why am I surprised?

dversepoets.com Here is a poetry unfamiliar to me. Not sure I aced it. Fun and challenging. It did not rain, but my tea this morning was all scent and not a bit of flavor.

The Seguidilla is:
• stanzaic, written in any number of 2 part septets. (7 lines)
• syllabic, 7-5-7-5 : 5-7-5 per line. There is a slight pause between L4 and L5 suggesting L4 should be end-stopped.
• rhymed by assonance xAxABxB or xAxABAB. x being unrhymed. True rhyme is generally not used.
• composed with a volta or change in thought between L4 and L5.
• sometimes serves as a conclusion for another verse.

  8. Somehow I feel that the spice is lost to the storm… maybe the rain is really more than weather.
