The Ball of Delights

It is an art
to gobble
one pani puri
whole in a go.
That concoction
Of sour and sweet
crisp and cool
in one mouthful
“A li´l more sweet”
I implore the vendor
busy serving
a teaming melee
That gasp
of satisfaction
over every ball
of perfection
If the Gods
shared their secrets
they world´ll know
our shared adoration.
The prompt for Day 27 is to write a poem that explores the sense of taste and mine is inspired by the tasty Indian street food of pani puri.
