Grapes turn to Wine

Autumn is time for grapes
purple green or bright red
healthy fruit good to eat
inviting all to eat
fruit bowl looks nice with grapes

fruit bowl looks nice with grapes
insects start attacking
grapes start to have a smell
they smell a lot like wine
will they turn to liquor

Pirouette is:

  • A decastich (10-line poem) written in two 5-line stanzas.
  • Each line contains 6 syllables
  • Line 5 ends the first half of the poem, and line 6 starts the second.
  • Lines 5 and 6, called “the turn-around,” are identical. The turn-around must be sharp, taking the thought in a different, preferably opposite, direction.
  • Rhyming is optional


  1. Dear Elsie,
    Thank you for always liking my posts and listening, caring about my sad news about my son (shared about a month ago, I think.)
    Tomorrow, your blog will be on a post called “. . . . tangled messes” I really appreciate your warmth and kindness.
    I like how you feature nature, animals and your poems are so relaxing and meditative. Hugs, Robin 💐 💞

    • It is a challenge. I have been doing this one every weekend and having fun learning new forms of poetry. At the moment I,m also doing the 30 days poetry challenge, A to Z challenge, and my Weekly Poetry Challenge, it keeps me busy writing, I have a feeling I’m overdoing it, while not feeling the best, hope I manage to make it to the end. Have a nice week.
