We Are Chopped Mint

We are hanging hams, are we
in cellars off the coastal sea
licked by Mediterranean breeze

or foot-smashed grapes in Tuscany
afloat in oaken barrels, we
as flavors gain complexity.

Everyone is clever, everyone is bright
We are salt and we are light

We're the craft of chocolatiers
(from Switzerland with warm
hands on cold mountaintops.)

We are slowly sipped espresso.  We are chopped mint.

We indeed are crème brûlée
formed by hand like potter's clay.

    Chad, let me start by saying that the title was very catchy. I loved your choice of words and how you related us to simple yet beautiful things all over the face of this planet. Well done... this poem is very profound. I can't wait to check out your other pieces! Best regards from the United Arab Emirates, Maya =)
