Day 27 – And last but not least, here’s our (optional) prompt! Many poems explore the sight or sound or feel of things, and Proust famously wrote about the memories evoked by smell, but today I’d like to challenge you to write a poem that explores your sense of taste! This could be a poem about food, or wine, or even the oddly metallic sensation of a snowflake on your tongue.
Taste of Dahi Puri!
Oh, my mouth is salivating,
On hearing the name of the dish,
To try the famous Indian snack, you wish…
A few raw & boiled veggies & few chutneys,
All combined & stuffed in the crispy puffed puris,
Topped with loaded curd, sprinkled with salt & spices,
Garnish with a bit of coriander and sev,
Yuummmm, I can’t wait to taste…
Your mouth is exploded with flavours,
Sweet-tangy, a bit sour along with few spices,
Perfectly balanced flavours that tingles your tongue,
Can also be customised according to one’s taste.
Now, that for you my dear is the Dahi Puri’s Taste.
