A funny thing happened while singing...

...at the open mic in Roebling, New Jersey last Sunday...this poem came from singing one of my favorite John Denver songs...

Summer Kiss


Have
you
ever
had
a kiss
that was
juicy
Red; it
ran down
your chin
You could chew
on the embarrassment
Went back for more
Salty tears
Down your cheek
Touching
Velvety texture
Making the moment
A touch of perfection

Love is…

Vine ripe Jersey tomatoes…

In the words of Guy Clark-

Only two things money can’t buy,
That’s true love and homegrown tomatoes…

Rhapsody B- Interesting site you have, and I loved what you wrote on 10/31, nice story could be a poem...

Thanks guys, I may alter it a few words here and there, always my work in progress, like the Summer Kiss name...

Chef,

Your food poetry rocks. I hope you make it into a book, and I will buy it and we'll read it over our fun dinner/cooking parties.

That is a new slant on the food/love theme, and very well done in to the bargain. Original and telling.
