I've been working on a series of poems for a class I took this semester, a poetry workshop.  During the first half of the class, there were more specific prompts, but the assignment for the rest of the year is just to write.  I decided to write a series of poems about something about which I dane ;-)  to know a bit more than average: food, cooking, and flavor.

I'm calling the project, "The Life of Flavor" and it's hopefully going to be an interesting cookbook of sorts, where each recipe is preceded by a series of poems that describe, separately, the main flavors and ingredients of each dish.  The idea is that the impression from each poem should hold strongly enough that the reader, having read the poems in quick succession can 'taste' the dish.  :)

For example, a recipe key lime pie would be preceded by four poems on a page:  lime, cool and smooth, graham cracker, and whipped cream.  So far, I've written a poem about lime, and another about... another food (it would spoil reading the poem a bit for me to tell).  Anyway, I've posted the two poems below, and I'd love feedback.  But I'm mainly posting because I'm looking for a few people to help me write.  If you're interested, either post in response or send me an email.

Enjoy:
