I love baklava too. You have created a perfect image for the reader. You appeal to many senses. If the reader has never had the opportunity to savor this delicacy, they will be able to vicariously enjoy. Well written.

Congrats on winning the contest, dear friend. I notice you've not been much active on FS (me too). Hope you do come back. Or send me another book! *wink* I love your witty voice plus your keen sense of the music of words. This has a bouncy, whimsical beat and fine phonics in phrasing with all the alliteration, rhyme and assonance. I like the well timed internal rhyme of sung and tongue and coat and throat. Fingers and lingers are a fun rhyme pair matched with tinglers (made up words are so much fun!)

Love,
rd

Hi Rachelle
I approached this review with curiosity, seeing as the title was referring to a (delicious) pastry. After reading your poem, I was very impressed with your ingenuity to write about a taste sensation for a romance poetry contest.

Your words "upon my tongue," "a sensuous slow-dance beat," "caress my throat," and "tinglers," all were suggestive of romance and erotic desire. Brilliant.

Susan

a sensuous slow-dance" ...dripping honey never sounded so sexy- Lobber

    Decadent to the max! No wonder Greeks love to celebrate so much! If this was on my celebratory menu, I'd celebrate every day!!

    Thanks for the nice review.

Hello, what a wonderfully mouth-watering dessert traditionally made with layers of filo pastry and nuts held together with honey. Give me baklava anytime for that as you say romance with the tastebuds. Yummy!
Best wishes in the contest,
Sylvia

Some desserts can be downright sexy, as this poem proves! This is skillfully-written, in lively, descriptive terms with excellent rhymes.
Superb description.

I'm not sure how a baklava can sing a song. And I love Baklava, though I seldom buy it since it's so expensive. And I don't know how honey can drizzle "bud tinglers." If you're referring to taste buds, yes they to cause one to enjoy eating sweet things, but honey doesn't drizzle them, as they already exist separately from the honey in a person's body.

    It was very generous of you to bestow five stars despite all the poetic license I took here. Thank you for the review.

reply by Six-Star Writer on 14-Jul-2019
    You're welcome. But is it really "poetic license," or flawed conceptualations. No disrespect intended.

reply by the author on 14-Jul-2019
    Oh, of course not! And certainly none taken. (I think you've got some poetic license going with that "conceptualations" word you used there. Didn't it come up with a red line under it? No disrespect intended.)



reply by Six-Star Writer on 14-Jul-2019
    Nope. But I'm sure autocorrect took offense. It doesn't like when I spell words correctly. Nice chat, but I'm off to renew my poetic license. I think the Poetry DMV is open Sundays.

reply by the author on 14-Jul-2019
    No wonder you're a six star writer then, correcting the spelling of Autocorrect!! Very impressive.

reply by Six-Star Writer on 14-Jul-2019
    Yeah, and it's a six-star autocorrect, and it farts.

reply by the author on 14-Jul-2019
    Wow, you've got it all!!

reply by Six-Star Writer on 14-Jul-2019
    Almost all.

reply by the author on 14-Jul-2019
    Oh, come on; this is no time to start being humble!!

reply by Six-Star Writer on 14-Jul-2019
    I'm not being humble. Simple telling the truth: I ALWAYS have something else to write. And actually, I am fairly humble, but I end up not being able to maintain being so, given all the people who want to attack me. A person's gotta defend himself; it's human nature. You know what I mean? Oh, my Hot pockets are ready. Lunch time!☺

Aaaah... you torment me with this gorgeous Greek goddess of gobbling greedy goodness. I want some, I must have some. Your poem has incited me to get off my bum and out of the house to the nearest Turkish restaurant (no Greek ones handy). Pretty powerful poem!

Yes, but it is so sweet! Night calorie and not good for the heart! I definitely think it is more heavy than light, but you sell it here like it is nectar! So I enjoyed the taste! Love Dolly x
