ROOP REKHA BHASKAR


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….
Mouthwatering….. Jalebi

    What a wonderful depiction on Jalebies it is! It is an amusing and stunning poem beginning with fantastic introduction like.......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. From children to nonagenarian dribble to slurp Jalebies. This poem is so attractive like the attractiveness of Jalebies. Many thanks dear madam for posting such a gem. .....10

    Wow..... honey drips from each line. How better can one describe this Indian sweetmeat! The golden yellow and crispy ones are indeed tastier. While eating, one can't help that slurpy sound coming out! I feel having had a Jalebi!
    This rightly deserves a 10

    I am afraid I have to be very careful with your poetry hereafter. I am diabetic. This one made my blood sugar spike towards the skies. Marvelous write - as good as jelebis. (Report) Reply
