Cadent Poems : Feb 21

Appreciating apricity or apricitying you? Couldn’t both be true?


This sweet and simple poem wraps up with a heartwarming winter homecoming.

Is there nothing more comforting than coming home to loved ones? Assuming this is what the poem implies – I would entirely agree. It could very easily be referring to a crackling fireplace or a warm oven where dinner has been simmering, or the simple comfort of a heated home. But if reading this poem while considering Apricity’s seaside tale, it could take-on a slightly different spin.

Did you miss the beginning of Apricity by the Sea? Catch up on previous segments by visiting Cadent Words’ February page:

As it stands, it seems as though Harold and Marianne are in the process of reaching an agreement. Obviously, knowing the fate and outcome of the word apricity, today’s poem certainly must have nothing to do with Apricity, but instead it must be referring to Harold and Marianne.

The fact of the matter is, when I wrote Apricitying You more than five years ago, I had no idea I’d be fabricating a tale about Harold, Marianne, and Apricity. But it sure is interesting to read it now and see how well it fits in!

That’s what I love about poetry – no matter how quirky, senseless, or incredibly deep and meaningful a poem might be – it can be interpreted in so many different ways depending on who is reading it or when it is being read.
