Three Tastes - NaPoWritMo

Three Tastes
Effervescent sweetness
Spirited pinkness
Doing the bubble-shuffle
Across the wobbly tiled floor
Of tastebuds

Chewy umami succulence
Flaming, evocotive blissfulness
Doing the zip-zap two-step
Down the smoothly undulating
Esophageal hallway.

White, whipped fluffiness
Silken, saccharine luxuriance
Melt, melt, melting into a waltz
Across the gates
Of lips.
This is an installment of my endeavor to write a Poem-A-Day in honor of April being National Poetry Month.  If you want to take part in the annual celebration of all thing poetry consider signing up to receive a poem each day in your email courtesy of the Academy of American Poets.  Or take participate in Poem-in-Your-Pocket Day on April 27th.  There are also loads of Poem-a-Day challenges on the local and international level to inspire creativity and hone the art of poetry writing.
