Deviled Eggs

                                      Smooth white orbs, halved and emptied
                                                 Golden centers mashed
                                             Mayo, pickle juice combined
                                                Half orbs mounded high
                                                      Paprika adorned
                                                       Won't last long
                                                                Eat!

    Hello Miss Kim! This dish was well-dressed! The slam dunk was the descriptive usage of white orb for eggs...how creative, poetess. And the ending was right up my alley---you are right, the Won't Last Long so EAT! lol. Congrats on this winning delight. Thanks for supporting my contest. I am still a novice but I can sense beautiful poetry! Luv, Gwendolen

    Tasty write, Kim - I've never tried these and have often wondered what they were, exactly

    I LOVE THESE, Kim. Sadly, at MY house, they do not go fast. Only I and my daughter seem to like them!! You came up with a great and original theme for this contest. I hope the judge loves those deviled eggs too!
