GloPoWriMo: Day 23

Standard
GloPoWriMo: Day 23

The Day 23 prompt was to write a double elevenie which is an eleven-word poem of five lines, with each line performing a specific task in the poem.  The first line is one word, a noun, the second line is two words that explain what the noun in the first line does, the third line explains where the noun is in three words, the fourth line provides further explanation in four words, and the fifth line concludes with one word that sums up the feeling or result of the first line’s noun being what it is and where it is.  A double elevenie would have two stanzas of five lines each, and twenty-two words in all.  My poem could be based on two nouns that are opposites, like sun and moon, or mountain and sea.  My poem touches on two childhood memories.

Ginger
Warm spice
Tingling my tongue
Bringing back lovely memories
Nostalgia

Bread
Basic need
Filling my belly
Remembering strawberry jam sandwiches
Childhood
