Taste and See

To dare to taste, to trust, to live—

To foolishly stick out one’s tongue
And chase a single snowflake
In the feathery, fluffy falling
To taste the winter and hold the memory in your heart;

In the fading of the winter snow,
To draw the sap out from a tree
And let the sweetness fill your soul
With hope for all that is to come;

To pluck a berry from the field,
To close one’s eyes and savor the richness of the moment,
To rinse one’s tongue with cool spring water
And feel the soul refreshed;

To wait for seed and soil and sun
To work their magic on the garden
And then to sample each life-giving gift
With a heart of gratitude and praise;

To choose to taste of gifts divine
And from all else refrain;

To open one’s heart to taste
God’s mercy and His grace
In every time and season—
To taste and see that God is good;

This is the life so sweet.

I love your word pictures and he way they show taste, especially the closing lines.
Great job.

This is beautifully done.

Like your descriptive array in showing the variety of human senses to equate God in all of His splendor and goodness.

Beautiful wordmanship! I haven't memorized a poem for at least 25 years, but I want to memorize this one.

Very nice! I get in a diet rut, do not like to taste new foods....God continues to offer free samples. I want to be first in line to taste!

The words "poetic prose" came to mind while I was reading this lovely poem. I like the flow of the poem, and the message is great too. Well done.

I really appreciate the way you took a physical sensation & correlated it to a spiritual, life principle. Take what we can relate to and spiritualize it! I really did enjoy this. Write more stuff like this!!
