Vanilla – A Poem

Vanilla’s delicate orchid, remembers its vow to humanity,

Each flower pollinates, only by the touch of human hands;

An object d’ art on nature’s altar, festooned in floral beauty.

Beans in olfactory buoys, bob upon flavor’s tossed gales,

Their essence, a voice on water, calming uncharted waves.

Obsidian extract in amber vials; their aroma oars outstretched,

Dock at each port of call, bartering their cultivated riches,

In exchange for the immeasurable currency, of the human touch.

  1. Oh these vanilla pods are so scarce these days. I don’t think I’ve ever used them again since moving home to my country. Vanilla essence are in abundance but its not the same. The distillation process is sweetened and doesn’t give the same flavour to desserts and custards as the pod.
    A really lovely and gracious serenade to the vanilla orchard. Such a delicate and pretty flower.
