A Little Bite


Inspired By  The Daily Prompt: What’s the most delicious thing you’ve ever eaten?

Still Life with Wine and Fruit
Léon Bonvin1863

They are

a little bitter, somewhat sweet

brittle, fragile and delicate

they crumble like dust, touched by a single drop of rain

on my tongue.


So delicious, so clever, how sublime

how they worked together

to become one

as they dance around my mouth in perfect time.


What is this you ask

this delectable light feast

that I ecstatically and unabashedly   enjoy?


It isn’t a fruit, it isn’t a sweet, it isn’t beef or chicken or wine.


They are  three  little words that I do savor with glee

and those three  little words are,

” I told you . ”
