The NaPoWriMo prompt for today is to write a poem that explores your sense of taste! This could be a poem about food, or wine, or even the oddly metallic sensation of a snowflake on your tongue.




A visit to mom forever a delight

her zesty food dipped with affection

garnished by her blessing

spiced by her devotion



Serving special cuisine

I visit each time

she decided to bake my favorite

“Mom’s classic pie”



The bitterness of broccoli

spiced up with chillies

extends flavor to sugary carrots

with a creamy layer so yummy



The taste of sour lemon

and sweetness of honey

zing up the mushrooms

to appease the tummy



The perfect amount of salt

neither more nor less

to make the peppery pie

retain its crispiness



Lettuce and bell peppers

olives and onion

garnished with coriander

taste like heaven



Cheese so mellow

softening coarse nuts

my mom’s scrumptious pie

is simply delectable!
