Poem on a Plate

Poem on a Plate


Obrigado, she said,

let’s go

make like the locals

and live

as finely as nobles

off land

and the sea ..

On freshly caught


black olives,

and unpasteurised

goats cheese,

buckets of red wine

white grapes,

and wild honey ..

Plus baskets

of this homemade, 

still warm

and delicious crusty


Portuguese bread ..

    That’s the best poetry of all, a platter full of delicacies.

    • Neville

      For those who want their cake and to eat it too .... thanking you sir 🙂

      Didn't quite bring back the romance of faggots and peas on the street corner.

            But not Dr Google - that can be ghastly for some folk. We can think we have every disease and illness that is going.

            What a deeelishuss taste of simple dishes when love's on the menu my friend. - - methinks this needs a big "origado" for such a poetic platter Nev.- - - - (at least as I understand that Portugese word) ..............x

              Certainly one way of consolidating international relations is via a good feed (not into haute cuisine).
              Just give us a few olives, a bucket of red wine n some goats cheese to wipe on the crusty bread….
              An good will for everyone… I’m off for a nap after, as tranquility slowly seeps through my body.
