Day Six

Write a poem about food. This could be a poem about a particular food, or about your relationship to food in general. Or it could simply be a poem relating an incident that involves food.

Lilikoi Butter

Oh Lilikoi
How your name
tantalizes my tongue
Your scent
wakes me
to the lush world
outside my lanai
Tastebuds trigger
saliva glands
at mere mention
of you

But to find you
golden, encased
in glass jars!
The creamy spread
of you,
into butter
my morning toast
next to my glass
of lilikoi juice
Truly, I am
in paradise
where a fruit’s passion
into pleasure
