A recipe for remembering
Take the days that tasted of salt
Fold them gently through
the year that tasted mostly of
fifteen different jars of honey and
several glasses of wine.
Let this rest for a while until
There is no distinct beginning or end to
the salt of sorrow
the sweetness of love.
Slowly stir through
the months that taste of cardamom.
Repeat recipe as often as required
Add salt and mango
as you desire.
Remembering is the tasting of time.
