Image: What a Dish! (here)

Best choice as of the waters' token
Array of offerings to test with relish
On a silver platter in unusual fashion
An angler's delight, what a dish!

A dash of lime a clove of garlic
Whet the appetite in simple measures
Nothing spectacular just a wayward chick
Dreams of a quick fix for a connoisseur
(55 words)

  2. Quite an unusual pairing of images in this verse too. How long does this relish last? I wonder. Very interesting. :-)

  3. That picture is quite astounding. I like the angle you took in your lines (I suppose that is an unfortunate pun!).

  9. There seemed to be something delightfully old fashioned with the use of the old colloquialism "what a dish!" that played so well with some of the more surreal aspects of the poem. This was a very fun piece.
