The Aesthete's Alphabet - C is for Cinnamon

Burnished talc, I'd mistake it for cocoa if not for its scent,
tell-tale and irresistible
Pied Piper, spice-song filling the air, in anticipation they follow invisible tether, a chorus of "Mmmm, that smells good!", their love-song back
Redolent intoxication, breathing in present, exhaling the past
The taste of Mama's love, the feel of home
A portkey to childhood, stirring memories spicy but sweet. 
(Poem via here)

I'm going to pick up the pace a bit, else this series will take me the whole year! So the posts will be coming thick and fast...stay tuned.
Till next time
