Sweet vs. Savory

Recent OctPoWriMo prompts asked us to explore the five senses. Today’s is taste.

Sweet vs. Savory

This year I learned 
savory’s my favorite,
Observed the turn
When I chose
bread over cake,
Quiche over custard,
Salsa and hummus.
Like this simple dish
of three ingredients:
Cooked lentils
And feta cheese
A concoction
That assumes
the persona
Of salad, side dish
Appetizer with chips
And quenches cravings
In record time.
