spice it!-----Poetry on Thursdays

This week's host is jillypoet, the prompt being uncorked---
uncork whatever you want and pour it out into your next poem..

spice it!

cleaned, cut into squares
sun dried, salted.
tossed around
once in a while
with condiments,
tangy spices.
ginger, chillies, mango
fighting for supremacy.
bottled through summer
soaked in so long-
oozing with taste.
aroma reaches out
well before uncorking!!

Next week's prompt is Walking in the World and our host is Tracie Lyn at The Red Door Studio.

You remind me, very deftly, that taste is one of the senses I rarely use in my writing. How fully aware you must be remember this alll important..but easily forgotten element of writing.
