Jalebies…. - Poem by ROOP REKHA BHASKAR
Round and round, like a spiral disc;
Oozing with syrup and laced with sugar;
Entwined loops, nectar kissing swirls;
Thick and juicy, thin and crispy – temptingly curled;
Golden yellow or like orange wheels.
Succulent, sticky, dribbling to hold.
Coated moist and crunch to the bite
And then - all in all it melts in your mouth.
The delicious molten comes seeping thru.
Churn your tongue, close your eyes,
Devour the crust, juice laced inside.
Lip smacking, slurping the burst within!
Eyes brighten and hands reach for another….
