The Feast

you marinated me in elderberry wine

to titillate tongue tip

pungent, yet refined

you added a pinch of something dark

a fervid flavor, undefined

caressed the scars with coarsened salts

in sweet savory sting sublime

..

and when the time was ripe to take

we sizzled luxuriating on fired grate

juices mingling to caramelize

sybaritic sizzle of searing sighs

flesh thus sealed, tending to underdone

a tantalizing feast

the first of many

had

begun…

 

Ode to an egg

Oh but you are … so..so deliciously, teasing me

with your farm fresh bright
Shall I flip you over-easy?

Your lascivious ooze shall remind me of my haste

I must be patient

Or prepare a little bath and let you linger to poached perfection

No
You deserve a pedestal for your perfection

And softly, softly I shall indulge

But shall I have the patience?
Perhaps just throw you down

And scramble your senses

Until you are

quite

Done

 

What happens when you are preparing dinner, feeling poetic and letting  your mind wander all at the same time. 😊
