Ode to a Clove













This image is Magpie Tales prompt#56.  Here’s my tribute to the miracle bulb.


Allium Sativum clove of my dreams

Broil it, sauté it and blend it in creams

Crush it and press it and cook in a stew

Slice it and dice it and stir in a roux

It’s good for what ails you both night and day

Warding off a colds, keeping vampires away

I can’t get enough, I pile up my plate

Only one problem …I can’t get a date

    I certainly love what you’ve done with Allium Sativum, nice coincidence!

    Hahaha – clever and fun magpie!

    Very impressive. I find it so difficult to rhyme and you did it effortlessly. Charming and evocative!

    Haha! Well done. I like the punch line…

    Enjoyed it!

    I really like how we get so many ideas out of one photo. Everyone interpreting it differently.

    LOL. Very cute! Obviously you just haven’t met the right person yet. My boyfriend and I will eat clove after roasted clove whole sometimes. JUST because garlic is soooooooo good! 🙂

    Heehee! Cute ending!

    i agree it is a miracle bulb … lighthearted spirited romp through rhyme and laughter… you need to find someone who likes garlic as much as you… just a thought…
