Topic: Savory to the Taste (07/26/12)

TITLE: Call It What You Will

My taste buds stood at attention,
when a certain food was mentioned.

My eager mouth filled with moisture,
as I anticipated the heavenly morsels.

The aroma was totally awesome.
My appetite pleaded...can I have some?

With the dish my eyes caressed,
I longed to be filled to my fullness.

Alas, my plate I overly filled.
Soon my taste buds were overly thrilled.

Is it sweet or is it bland?
Neither said I, as if to command,
how others should taste the concoction.

I mean, it is by no means bland nor sweet.
What are the other options?

It is rich, it is bold
like a pot of liquid gold,
filling one’s mouth with pleasure.
Like gold to the seeker of treasure.

How do you name such ambrosia?
With what elegant word is it called?
I know not and my vocabulary has stalled.

Leave it not for me to decide.
I’m in love with the taste and the smell.
I cannot get my glutton-ness fill.

I only want my cravings stilled…
Call it what you will.

I'm not a big poetry fan but this one may have won me over. It flowed and felt so natural to me. You did an amazing job of defining the topic without giving a definition which can be quite tricky.
