One of my 'new' writing pass times for the past year is Food Poetry. I an featured on Crop To Cuisine radio program out of Boulder Colorado. Last poem they featured along with a show about Fair Trade and Organic Coffee was my poem 'Barrista'. One day I will do a chapbook of my food poems.
Often it is from passion inspiration, an instantaneous moment of taste bud delight that I write something of this nature. If I ponder too much, the words just take too long to come and I am fickle. My father said it, and he was right.
Well taking a day off from being a tourista, I set my sights on room service, and writing. Of course when I let the urge to order something not planned, but with, and always a quest to find something out- I asked room service if the kitchen could share a secret...here is what happened!
PS- I will post the photo I took in a few days...to see if I conquered poetically...turns out I will be on the road the next few days, so I am adding the photo now...
One by one
five finger slaves take hold
prehistoric- Iberian statuesque mound
Within the eyesight of Toledo hillside
subtle orange-red sky line
blankets history marries cocina-archy
Holy grails, piquant lava spill
stain, sting the soul as it goes down
Archeological finds have been greater
Culinary discovery in due course worth more
than geological religion
10,000 years of cultivated existence co-exist
In common russet shaped craft
traveling shore to shore today
Ceasar Pollo at my side
Porcelain fortresses had no chance
