Here it is the first Hump Day of the month, blog-due-date, and once again I’m running behind.
Good news is I’m leaving tomorrow to attend a Writer’s Retreat in Kauai so I’ll have a real travel story next month; bad news is this post will leave you questioning its purpose and content. Some things in life are just beyond reason…
AN ODE TO OKRA
On display at Farmer’s Market
the only basket of your kind
I almost walked right passed you
Okra not being on my mind.
Then visions of viscidity
Got me in the mood
While often unjustly overlooked
I know you’re Superfood.
I brought you home and gave you a steam
No need for gumbo or stew
When given a chance you delight on your own
And now I’m hooked on you.
