Luscious #8/30

(Class assignment: alliteration; word given to me - luscious)

Like almost all words, it is rooted in Latin;
delicere, meaning, to entice by attraction
or charm; its mouth-feel, liquid like satin;
a warm lullaby, a promise of satisfaction

for the senses; loving, lazy mouthfuls
of umami and cream. Litanies lifting
luscious languidly, lingering; doubtful
there is a better reason for our existing

than moments lost to lust and laughter,
and layered cakes of chocolate. Look,
let Luscious! be our call to action. After
sifting lore and legend from every book,

Mastering the Art of French Cooking
or Karma Sutra, both are lush tomes
of all the Luscious we are looking

to learn, so we can really cook at home
