My Gourmet Life

Flowers cream and violet to brighten the pale summer Bleached out houses against painted green lawns Vanilla beans from Madagascar stiffen and crumble Kitchen heating up with Peruvian songs Dandelion soup for dinner, picked from the patch in the back Parsley tabouli with tomatoes tender, hardly a commoner’s snack Shoulders sun kissed from cucumber gardens Lemon verbena skin Coconut milk green swirled with Thai basil Waiting to throw the hot chilies in Come over to dine in my gourmet life Come over to slip from your mountainous strife You’ll find me in a gypsy skirt, bare feet and twirling Steam filled with garlic and peppergrass swirling Tea lights lit and the night sky burning Filling my soul to the brim Come over to dine in my gourmet life Feet kicked up, to the infinite whim.
