Two 5 Senses Poems for Fun



Love is pink

it tastes as warm strawberry

it looks like sunset on the ocean

it smells like a dozen roses

it feels like your warm embrace

holding me so gently.


Sadness is rusty

it looks like a blizzard on a winter day

it smells like a house burned by fire

it tastes like sour spoon of medicine

it sounds like the cry of starving child

it feels like stream of hot tears

running down my cheek.

Karen Quinn 1989
