Daily Prompt: Pungent

via Daily Prompt: Pungent

An Offbeat Thanksgiving

It was an unusual Thanksgiving.

No turkey, stuffing, cranberries in sight.

Rather, a smorgasbord of culinary treasures,

Served on kaleidoscopic platters.

Dishes from Italy, France, India represented

To share among a diverse group of friends.

Mouths on fire instantly after

Indulging on a spicy eggplant dish.

The pungent aroma of truffle cheese

Brought out after the main courses

Brings full stomachs back to empty.

Wash it all down with a smooth as silk

Malbec from Argentina.

Gorged from the decadent fruit platter,

We idly lay back on the couch

In a food paralysis.

It will take the strength of Hercules

To get us standing again.
