dVerse Poets

***

It started as Arizona dreaming

Quiet Basil was hidden, scheming

Fennel seed kept sprouting

Mulling spices hid his outing

Paprika colored my desires

Aleppo pepper stirred the fires

Nutmeg bridged the gap

Lemongrass cured the flap

Preferring Vanilla over Tuscan sunset

Sunny Paris over Sea salt sweat

Decided my Mural of flavor

Needed mildness over savor.
