Take a Bite!

Take a bite out of life

Go on, sense it coming towards you

Sniff its tantalising possibilities

Then snap off a crisp, clean chunk

Bite down on its crunchy sweetness

Chomp it into smaller and smaller pieces

That swirl around in your mouth

Spreading flavours and sensations

Chew and swallow its deliciousness

Savouring every last tang and succulence

Lick your tongue around your teeth

Seeking out any lingering morsels

Holding the taste and the pleasure of it

For as long as possible then,

Before you let it slide into a distant memory –

Go on!

Take another bite!
