Na Po Wri Mo – April 29 2023

A two-part poem that focuses on a food.

Wanting More  


An ordinary pleasure 

is to sit down when it’s possible

with your favourite brew,

To open that packet of biscuits.

To ease one from the wrapping 

without breaking its delicate form.

To dip, to feel the chocolate 

melt on your finger tip.

Only then to eat. 

Oh so sweet, 

one biscuit,  

in one sensory moment,

an expression of ambrosia.


But then the mind

craving another, 

then another

and wanting more 

than it has.

One more hour,

one more sunny day, 

one more try,

another chance.

One more 

chocolate biscuit

too many.
