April Prompts: Number 28

Kari’s #1:  A gastronomic delight

WHAT THEY EAT

~for Mouawia

The blessed souls in Paradise–

that garden where one can eat

of the fruit of any tree but one–

eat figs.

Picked ripe,

dried soft and seedful,

sliced wide to hold rich

walnut halves,

toothsome, gold. On each

a dribble of

tahini,

richer, barely bitter.

The blessed souls partake

with crunch and glide,

immortal tongues

and throats full satisfied.

The blessed lick

their fingers clean, and sigh.
