The Alchemist

Her tender craft at making potions
supple alchemist with acumen
juices joy with sprinkled citric acid
three or four dashes of sesame oil
nose her gauge and taste her guide
sweep of smoking sage purifies

for Sunday Whirl:


  1. This alchemist doesn't mess around. She gets right to work, does what needs to be done, and gets results! I like your spare writing style!

    Whirling Haiku

  2. Very impressive that you can weave this week's challenging words into a succinct poem like this.

  3. I can almost smell that purifying sage--- Well done, Willow.

  4. Good use of the whirl words and also goes well with the Poetry Jam prompt. Thank you Willow!! I was worried no one would try my prompt!

  5. Love the way you put these words together....amazing writing Willow! :-)

  6. The smells, tastes on my tongue, and visions are potent. I feel like I have been to the Alchemist when I read this! Great job!
