Cinnamon, My Heart's Delight

"A Syllabic Poem Celebrating the Warmth and Magic of Cinnamon"

🌢️ This week’s challenge is The Spice of Life: Choose a spice from your kitchen cabinet, and relate its flavor to an event that recently happened in your daily life. Write your syllabic poem! Bonus—if you share a photo of the spice in your post. 🌢️

For this challenge, I have picked up "Cinnamon". Cinnamon is not just a popular spice, it also offers a range of health benefits. It has been used for centuries in traditional medicine to treat various ailments. Cinnamon is rich in antioxidants that can help protect the body from damage caused by free radicals. It has anti-inflammatory properties that can help reduce inflammation in the body. Cinnamon may also help regulate blood sugar levels by improving insulin sensitivity. In addition, it has antimicrobial properties that can help fight off infections. So not only does cinnamon add delicious flavor to food, but it also offers numerous health benefits.

Here is my syllabic poem:-

Cinnamon sticks, oh how sweet
In kitchen jars, it's a treat
Adds flavor to each dish made
Memories of home cascade

Its fragrance so warm and true
Reminds me of childhood too
Simple pleasures, we forget
Cinnamon brings back, I bet

Reminiscing days that have gone
With cinnamon scent, I am drawn
A dash of it, my heart fills
Memories, it softly spills

A warm hug from grandma's lap
Pancakes with cinnamon, a nap
Innocent giggles fill the air
Life's simple pleasures we share

Cinnamon, a treasure trove
Of moments and memories wove
In every meal, a bit of past
A flavor that forever lasts.
