A Dedication to Underrated Greens

Little trees cover my plate,

An entrance to a tastebud tango.

The siesta starts with a citrus spice,

Springs of fresh cilantro.

Spinach follows in step behind,

With a bitter swirl over the tongue.

Another bite reveals arugula

With surprising crunch and tang.

In the last steps mint steals the show

Cooling the flavor floor.

An aromatic dance to savor,

Green’s the color I hunger for.


Thanks for reading :) Go enjoy some fresh leafy greens!

    Now La Cumparsita is playing in my head :D Who's underrating the greens? How dare they?
