Spice

spices

Inviting, tempting, through the open window
Perfumed friends beckon, come play with me.
A bit of this, a pinch of that
Who to play with today?

Basil, my old friend, first to grab
Nutmeg, to catch your tongue
Chili, to wake you up
Rosemary, to bring you home
Turmeric, to help you live well
Paprika, to add bright color
Cardamon, to sweeten and highlight
Curry, to open your mind
Cumin, to make exotic
Thyme, to harmonize
Cloves, to find the joy
Bay leaves, to balance it out
Allspice, to give it an edge
Cinnamon, to lift the world

All my friends, come to my table
Make my world come alive with scents and flavors
