Soul food

Take a bite…

A burst of sweet summer sunshine

Explodes in my mouth and

Slides down my throat.

Another bite…

Warm, salty sea

Rolls over my tongue

Mingles with sweet sun.

I close my eyes.

Another bite…

Sweet summer days fill

My mouth,

My stomach,

My soul.

This poem was inspired by my supper: sweet, ripe melon slices and parma ham, a match made in heaven!
