Taste Buds

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Wordle Special Addition Taste “August 22nd, 2016”


Taste buds

In my mouth,

On my tongue,

Flowers in a saporous feast

Of fizzy flavours:

A slice of pizza explodes with yeast,

Seasoned with herb and garlic,

Smokey with cheese;

Delicate ginger tea cleanses

My senses,

Honeyed and sweet;

Ascerbic, tangy unripe plum,

Not buttery and saftig

Like a nectarine or peach,

But only because the piquant

Plumper ones were out of reach.

I have used an image found on  en.wikipedia.org because the plums on our tree are avoiding me – they are all hanging over my neighbour’s side of the fence!
