    Romanian and American Passion

    We share a passion:  Food.
    Our kitchen scintillates
    with polenta that awaits,
    until baked to perfection.

    Like our blended lives,
    Delicate hands have sliced
    verdure until diced
    into a sensuous stew.

    He fries onions, garlic to
    a patient shade of tan
    adds spices to the pan
    then rescues all . . .just in time.

    Seminal migrant hands
    patient with every
    green leaf and savory
    spice.  The salad is tossed.

    I await our shared passion.
    A paper-thin phyllo dough
    filled, wrapped in butter . . slow
    bonding with gentle fingers.

    His hands pulse as he serves me.
    I take my first taste and moan.
    We devour all with a groan.
    Tomorrow we will dine American.

    wheelsal, I loved that you share Romanian cuisine in poetic verse. This poem brings the reader into your kitchen watching the hands do their work of preparation.A delicious and tangible setting. ginga



    Thank you my poet friend. You mus have caught this as I posted it. You are the best. Sally

    When power leads man towards arrogance, poetry reminds him of his limitations. When power narrows the area of man's concern, poetry reminds him of the richness and diversity of existence. When power corrupts, poetry cleanses.

    John F. Kennedy (1917-1963) Thirty-fifth President of the USA
