The fabulous aromas of food can lure you into submission at times and today’s poem is all about the sensuality of smell. On reflecting upon particularly pungent olfactory memories, I found myself in culinary ecstasy whilst penning this piece!
Gregarious garlic gathers in the sensuous slick
Flicks of balmy basil and teasing thyme climbing
up robust roasties.
Hungry as hell for your honey-glazed carrots
I sniff around like a wild wolverine
waiting for the tender thump of silky swede
guided by the glossy globules of gravy
senses seduced into insatiable salivation
whilst the warm vanilla vortex
Pulls me towards ecstasy.
