In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Ring of Fire.”
Cayenne on my eggs in the morning is yummy,
Turmeric and cumin serve my brain and my tummy.
Spices are healthy and fun to explore
But sprinkle to much and I go for the door.
I like some bite and the heat I can handle
Especially at night when we dine by the candle
I’m willing to try things that once I would shun,
My taste buds have seasoned, pardon the pun.
I want to know more and am willing to learn
That way I can choose those that don’t really burn.
I once had a pepper I shouldn’t have ate
And never again will it be on my plate.
So, it’s good to know which one’s you enjoy
To keep them available; when you cook to employ.
