buds in mouth and flowers,
a saporous feast of flavours:
pizza erupts, a volcano
of chilli, garlic and oregano;
zingy ginger tea cleanses
busy gustatory senses;
an unripe plum, quite sour,
not the buttery-sweet ambrosia
of a nectarine or peach,
the riper,
ones were out of reach.

My response to Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie Tale Weaver No 114 – April 6 – Taste

This week Michael has asked us to consider the sensation of taste. I have re-worked a poem I posted on MLMM back in August 2016.

  1. Lovely yummy words. Your words of pizza erupted imagination to salivation! Love the plum words too – the sweet ones out of reach.
    Kind regards

      1. Thanks — I’m having a frozen banana smoothie shake right now. Frozen bananas can be used like ice cream — even make soft banana ice cream. If you like, you can always add chocolate. There’s my “taste” of a comment.
