Savor The Food

Steaming rice…
Hot Pepper Rasam
Holding a Papad to munch
Grabbing a morsel quickly
Gulping down the mouth
I  never knew till I took into my mouth
That I was so hungry
Food never tasted so good

After days of desiccation
With fever killing all taste buds
This  moment of appetizing
Gives a feel …truly…heavenly
How true…when everything falls on palate
Never I could realize…
How valuable you are
How much I should cherish you
Being most fulfilling part of life
Food…True….even today
You are most undisputed king of all our requirements

How true….hunger rules
Whether it’s your instincts
Or your principal

*This is the spontaneous hunger poetry...after 6 days of high fever today afternoon when I took food I really felt heavenly)

nice...there are def meals that i have had after not eating a bit...that when you put it in your mouth is like ecstacy....a euphoria...and it has never felt so good to capture that well...

Nothing better than food you missed after a fever. I always have a longing for Gin and Bitter Lemon when i feel ill, good job it is not that often. Nicely done.

I can feel how welcome those mouthfuls were.

The first meal after being ill is always a special one. You have written that theme well!

PT, I trust you will visit the blogs of others who have responded to your poem, as we all enjoy comments as much as you do. Thanks.

I could taste a full south Indian sapad :) Vivid description of food. I liked these lines, especially-
'Food…True….even today
You are most undisputed king of all our requirements'

Never thought of how good food can taste after you have not eaten for a while for whatever reason. Sounds like you were quite ill--hope this is well in the past! I enjoyed tasting along with you here.
