Prompt ~WARM WINTER CHILI



WARM WINTER CHILLI


by John Yeo

 When a January day dawns with a cold chilly morning

There’s a spicy way to set your taste buds on fire

With fiery, warm winter chilli, it’s magic performing.

~

Taste is a sense of highly sensitive savouring

The sharp flavour and warmth with that chilli desire

When a January day dawns with a cold chilly morning.

~

A passion for food is exploration, taste discerning
The taste buds reflect a different sensation supplier

With fiery, warm winter chilli, it’s magic performing.

~

The heat spreads rapidly as the chilli starts burning

Providing more heat than you can possibly require

When a January day dawns with a cold chilly morning.

~

 Beware, the warm winter chilli can be habit forming

An antidote to the freeze with a heat magnifier

With fiery, warm winter chilli, it’s magic performing.

~

The antidote to bland cold taste buds is reforming,

Encouraging the body thermostat higher and higher 

With fiery, warm winter chilli, it’s magic performing.

When a January day dawns with a cold chilly morning.

HOT CHILLI PEPPER

by John Yeo

A passion for food is exploration, 

When taste buds react to a different sensation. 

Sweet things can tingle with extra flavour, 

The sharp taste of citrus can be something to savour.

Add a chilli or two to a steaming pot,

Then the taste buds shout loud,

HOT!~HOT!~HOT!

In American English, “chili” is the most common spelling for the spicy peppers as well as the stew and hotdog topping. In British English the preferred spelling is “chilli.” In Spanish speaking countries and regions of the US, “chile” is the most common variant. 

Warm and chilli are a contradiction in terms.

Heat is generated by the introducing warmth
