Spicy Memories

Certain words fondly nudge
memories of making merry
On a house boat;In the river
Meandering across villages
No more than ten homes big,
serving the best toddy
spiciest fish, scrambled eggs
and noodles.
Simple food by strangers
served with love stay life long.
This is a Quadrille (poem of exact 44 words) as prompted on dVerse and also linked to the Toads .
*Toddy is the south indian name for palm wine created fresh from the coconut palmtreesin villages. It smells pungent but is very delicious.

Spread the love, spread the word ..

  1. Yes a lovely memory, I can hear it as well as smell it. We used to sail and sometimes you would be moored out against other boats and at dinnertime, the sounds and smells would be amazing. usually very cosmopolitan.

  2. The warmest feeling when strangers show love with no expectations isnt it. Reminding me the people I met during travels.
