I love food, not in the sense of gorging myself, but for its innate beauty of color, fragrance and design. An artful dish is to be lauded and embraced, but there is a sensuous joy in food in its native state.

Some things you just don’t forget-your first fragrant juicy bite of a sun basked strawberry or the first bite of a habanero with its excruciating searing  and numbness that leave you wanting more.

Strawberry Habanero

Dawn basked blush with dew
Flirts from parasols of green.
Heart drop ingenue.

Tantalizing orb
Yields endorphin pain delight.
Torrid balm less night.
