Did you taste that?

Mellow market adventure days,

Sweet and bitter smells both at once.

Looking for the fresh, but also the deal.

Familiar faces of all different races,

Just trying to make a living.

Squeezing, smelling, looking, tasting,

Hoping for that special food,

and where I live there is sweet potato pie

and sweet potato bread, scupanons and

mexican food I can’t pronounce (or spell).

There’s all kinds together in harmony.

      1. Gordon — DO check out Amy’s blog. You will enjoy her work!! She’s another “poet friend” I’ve made here online. Absolutely love her! ~Paula

  1. Love the last line of this one, Gordon. So many things in a market would never be found in the same meal/dish. But in the market…they can exist in harmony. 🙂 ~Paula

  2. Yes, Sweet potato pie is a local favorite. I prefer the sweet potato bread myself. Glad you enjoyed the poem. That sweet potato pie just keeps giving!
