POEMS

EDIBLE

By  | 

Sizzling sounds of robust brown beef
Shakki and its close related friends
Speaking in hisses and splatter from a
Simmering sauce of rich creamy broth

Seasoned in time with thyme onions and salt
Stocked with dry and fresh pieces of sea
Scintillating veggies in hues of green
Spiced with red chilies delighting heat

Shreded okra slimly popping out white seeds
Seducing my appetite in a wet war of saliva
Savoring this scene of delicacies
Such yum sight to gladly behold

Straight from mama’s kitchen
Soul food for body and mind
Swallowed down with balls of grains
See this marriage of soul food

Slightly leaves the mouth with
Stinging zing and after taste of
Sheer glee and echoes of thank you
“Sweetie”, not just for cooking but

Serving your soul on a plate..
