What do the Senses say about Indian Gastronomy?

The assortment of tastes tells,
Enticingly spicy and aromatic smells
So many flavours,
So many colours
Hot and refreshing,
My senses are buzzing

The round shape of the Golgappa,
The cooling effect of the Raita
Sweet Tamarind peeking around to tame,
Fiery Cumin exciting the piquant flame
Tangy taste of chutney and pickle,
My palate they tickle

Papadums, so crispy
And Naans, so chewy
The spices obliterate a favourite jalapeno,
While I embrace the subtle taste of mashed potato

Taking me back to the root,
Will make me cheer, and not hoot
What’s better than Indian food,
Heaven must be feeling this good.
