Eating a rainbow, a summer joy,
tomatoes, red and yellow, ripe
basil-topped with olive oil
heady fragrance, swooning
with peach juice dripping
down my chin, corn
scents, colors of
summer, heat rising,
thunder and lightening, bring
rainbows after, hues, tastes, scents
of sun and earth, bitter and sweet,
merging of senses in my kitchen
NaPoWriMo, Day 5. The “eating a rainbow” line came from a seed catalogue in today’s prompts. We had snow flurries this morning, so it was pleasant to daydream of summer.
This started out as a nonet, but I couldn’t stop.
