My Blog Lyric Fire: Friday’s Favorite Word Feast/NaPoWriMo #8 – Cadence/Chocolate Soul

In addition to another poetic sampling to celebrate NaPoWriMo, I’m also bringing you the featured favorite word for this week. Cadence has always been one of my lost loved words because it’s inherent in all of speech. The beauty of music and poetry is usually illustrated by the power and passion of the rhythm and delivery.

So to pay homage to cadence, here is a poem I wrote called Chocolate Soul.  Enjoy! Happy Friday!

Chocolate Soul

Finger popping

Heart stopping

Toe tapping

Hip slapping
Chocolate soul

Buttery riffs


Caramel covered lips

Chocolate soul


Swaying trees

A cool autumn breeze

A lover’s kiss

An afternoon of bliss

Chocolate soul


An intense beat

Sultry hot heat

Rhythmic feet

Chocolate soul


A pimp’s lust dance

A gamblers last chance

A hipsters prance

Chocolate soul


A child’s hungry wail

A ships lost sail

A warden’s infested jail

Chocolate soul


An African American’s side profile

An Italian’s smooth sleek style

Puerto Rico’s pumped up pride

Slapping five on the black-hand side

Chocolate soul


Indian’s land untouched, preserved

Africa’s history undisturbed

Malcolm & Martin resurrected

Racism, murder and war rejected

Chocolate soul
