Italian Eating

Day 4 Prompt: “Think of the best independent restaurant you have eaten at recently. Write a poem about the flavors and sensations of the meal and drinks.”

warm, candlelit ambiance
walls hung with commemorative family photos
Nonno at the focal point
violin sounds play softly in the background
drifting beneath the chandeliers
dancing with the aroma of fresh bread
a caprese to commence
then extra parmesan by the boatful
red wine paired with handmade tortellini
enough cheese to coat the taste buds
every bite a lasting memory
laughter between shared forkfuls
smiles all around

-E.E.
