by Leonard M Hawkes

Savory, piquant,
Cajun at its best;
Satisfaction lingered
Until I saw you there:

Suddenly, by memory,
Select had turned
To common bland:

Desire and scent
And flavor now
Were only thought
Of time with you.

Food then but meagre fare--
No drink tamed thirst
When you were there.


Author's Note: "Free Sonnet" on meeting a friend as I left a restaurant.
