Will I Taste Her Again?

Will I Taste Her Again?

A Poem by Roland Petrov
"

My last trip before the pandemic was to Lima, Peru.

"
I got to know Lima
before the pandemic
I loved all her flavors

Dark and sweet Cusquenya
my beer choice for breakfast
Delicious fish skewers
on small red potatoes
Mashed potato as art
edible on my plate
Stir fried beef with French fries
Raw fish in marinade
Fruits soaking in pisco
afternoons of sipping
Pisco sour cocktails
with sweet potato chips
For dessert I entered
picarones heaven
sweet potato donuts
with spiced molasses sauce

I got to know Lima
before the pandemic
Will I taste her again?

This is a very tasty write and you have got my mouth watering, especially as I haven't had breakfast yet. I haven't been to Lima, but you certainly make it sound enticing for foodovers. And those cocktails, well that's the icing on the cake for me.

Quite unlikely I will ever get there but you make it sound like a delicious concept

It looks unlikely now, but maybe in a year or two?
Love the attention-grabbing title. Love how you do a tricky perception thing with the name "Lima" (could be woman, could be place). But most of all, you do the thing I love most in poetry, when a person uses vivid details to show instead of tell. You are slamming that concept here (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Thanks! These days a virtual hug is as good as it gets.
This is a delectable collection of things and beautifully chosen words. My compliments on this absolute delightful poem! We all long for this ordeal to end so we may go back to those much longed for treats and tastes.

These tastes make my mouth water. I can't wait to start travelling again. I was supposed to visit my sister in france this summer but it's on hold. :(

My return to Lima is also on hold, but once we get vaccinated, it's on!

A wonderful compliment, Beano. Thanks!
I knew I should have had breakfast before reviewing, I'm belly grumble hungry now.
This is definitely the way to travel, instead of looking for the nearest McDonalds and shouting loudly in English like it's their fault they don't speak like us. When in Lime, eh? Or is that only Rome?
Have always wanted to see the nazca lines and your words have just moved it nearer the top of my bucket list. I'll just print this out and use it as a recipe guide when I get there 😀

The mashed potato edible art is called "causa". Don't miss it.

I really enjoyed the gastronomic journey you took this reader on my friend.. I have never been to Peru, well not yet.. I have been to Colombia though which I believe is only next door and whose delights I have tasted and savoured.... A tasty post if ever there was.. Neville
