Heart of the Artichoke

Heart of the Artichoke

A Poem by Patricia Wedel
"

You are the sweet succulent heart of the artichoke... dipped in creamy butter of delicious desire... You are Rhubarb in early Spring dipped in sugary kisses of love...

"
As passions emerge and hungers delight... 
the possibilities soar from bloom to bloom 
The blossoms of Spring have become 
the hope of summer's reward. 
Cranberry and Blueberry golden wheat bread 
become the mainstay of a lover's retreat... 
served with creamy Brie as chords of Mozart 
flood the banks of rippling streams of 
promises made under the tender boughs 
of summer sighs and bluest of skies.

I never thought of gardening and poetry together. My wife has a garden every summer, and we watch as the blooms gradually turn to whatever they are going to be. Before long neighbors are locking the doors to their cars for fear of having tomatoes, squash, or maybe a dozen cucumbers stuffed in the back seat.
This is visually delectable.

You even make foods romantic. Soft words from a soft soul I would imagine. Valentine

The poetry's very "warm", though I find the coldness / softness of winds / words in your words... which helps the mind get relaxed. Lovely poetry!

As a landscape designer, have to mention that gardens set in natural forms with both gentle and/or ardent colours are just like setting letters into the warmth of metre and meaning. At least that's the intention for me.. doesn't too often work, but this one tries1

Your language here is so alluring and true, the blossoming of Spring, the harvest of Summer and onwards.. tis a super fantastic prayer come true.. and, you've planted your words so wonderfully well.

And those four last lines are a perfect setting for me, so please forward address.. it's perfect and inviting and magical, Patricia..

All I've had to eat since breakfast is a handful of fresh roasted peanuts, so now I'm possessed by the thought of an artichoke. And cheese. And bread. Rhubarb? Seriously, though, this terrific little poem is indicative of the thin line (in my mind, at least) that divides food from the big "L" word....love.

Summer sighs and bluest skies - again, you specialize in packing so much imagery into so few words. I love reading your work, thanks!
