Savory Delights


Wilt thou share the garden’s delights with me?

Enhance the joy of our savory feasts.

Show thy culinary ability.

Allow me to inhale the scents at least.


Table made festive with greens and yellows

Bright reds and oranges are so pleasing

Bring those who partake a mood so mellow

I dost believe that thou art me teasing


Wilt thou prepare a warm and hearty stew?

My bones feel frozen from this early Fall.

My taste buds are watering through and through.

Awaiting with expectation, thy call.


O gardener, draw me to thy table.

My satiety thou must enable.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

      1. 🙂 I decided on a fine hock approach, I have some lemons and butter and cumin etc for a vegetarian try up but i’ll get the mint later closer to. I think you might enjoy ONE of them if.
