Kisses for Spices

Ships sail east
Find safe harbor
Trade sweet juicy
For spices
Saffron and celery
Yellows and greens

Kisses the original
Spice of life
Bundles without number
Feet float above ground
Feeling rises from earth
Yellows and greens

Gentle petals
Of tulip
Dance gracefully
Desert sands
Grain by grain
Yellows of
Mustard seed

Dropped into hour glass
Amber seeks its level
Like syrup on pancakes
Slides on the plate
Surrounds me as
A desert island

Cinnamon and sugar
Lick fingers
Kiss and kiss again
Love in an envelope
Black pepper and red

Tongue moisten stamp
Press against body
Raise the sails
Wait for wind

And Coriander

One more kiss
And a sailors old rhyme
Poppy seed
Sesame seed
Cardamom and you

The spice that is mine!
