Gumbo


All I need is a bowl of gumbo
With someone across the table
To share in the experience
 Not looking for a miracle
Gumbo is magic enough
A bowl of goodness
A glass of wine or two
 A meal shared with a sympathetic soul
 A bowl that satisfies
But, to be true to self,
It must do much, much more....
Gumbo must propel, nay,
Compel to sin
Spice cannot be denied
Lest the universe crumble to cinders

As a lifelong gumbo eater/cooker, I say "Hell, yeah"! Happy Holidays from a Louisiana girl. xo

Jonah, if I lived anywhere near you, I'd love to share a bowl of gumbo with you -- and the talk as we sip that wine... Yeah!

Gumbo of words is great to share too. Love these words here.

I don't think I've ever had gumbo, but I'd be delighted to sit across the table and share some! :)
