feeding demon

Somedays, one just keeps feeling hungry! Hence I had to write this silly piece! Whirling Dervish has tagged me about favourite kitchens or culinary disasters. I will do it soon enough. As of now, hunger disaster!

hungry, I searched for food-
found nothing, only fruits.
bit into a succulent apple,
juices spurted on my chin.
grapes waiting to be eaten,
I chewed on a few. peeling
papaya, I cut into squares-
mixed with bananas, I
squeezed a lemon. eating
all, I satisfied hunger demon.


  1. fruits are a great way to satisfy hunger and this poem is very sweet.

  2. Sounds like you are still hungry Gautami. :)



  3. ok...eating all that at one time will give me a headache! :p And apple somehow, eaten with an empty stomach gives me migrain.

  4. Incredibly healthy - my demons are demanding chocolate at the moment - despite all the beautiful stone fruit sitting in the fruit basket.

    Here via Michele but waiting on Fiction Friday to return again :)

  5. That was a healthy demon! :)

    Michele sent me!

  6. Yummy. I think this is the second fruit poem I have read of yours. Very juicy and tasty poem. I am looking forward to all the food poems from Readwriteprompting. I won't have to eat for a week, yayay.

  7. Short and sweet (sorry, couldn't resist!)

    The question is, what are you hungry for? And what will satiate it?

    I get the sense that your hunger for knowledge is never-ending. Which is why you're so delightful to read and to know.

    Michele sent me back. Hope you're having a great class!

  8. Guatami,

    Glad to see you bit into the prompt--and it will work so well for this week's RWP prompt, too! I only wish my demons were as healthy as yours... :) Mine usually crave cheese. Lots and Lots of it.

  9. I find this intriguing. The search "found nothing, only fruits" as though fruits were not going to be enough - yet, after the feasting, the hunger was satisfied after all.

    I hear in this a caution that we sometimes self-censor ourselves out of what might be "just the thing" that we need.

  10. I'm often surprised how well fruits can satisfy hunger, specially banana
