Love is the poetry of the senses. - Honore de Balzac
One of our greatest pleasures - taste. Do you have a comfort food? How about a food you refuse to eat? What is your favorite food? There is many ways to describe how foods taste by themselves or even in relation to each other.
One of my favorite scenes in a movie is when Nicolas Cage asks Meg Ryan to describe how a pear tastes. Her reply was "You don't know what a pear tastes like?"
"I don't know what it tastes like to you."
Everything tastes different to different people. What you find delicious, another could find repulsive. In writing it's important to describe tastes to fully involve your reader in the character. It tells about them, giving important internal details that cannot be spoken in other ways.
Another interesting way to describe taste is through people. You can describe how a person tastes meaning their kiss or even their personality. Everyone has their own "taste" in movies and activities. Even animals and children have a taste in certain aspects of their lives. Do you have a "spicy" personality, a "sweet" one or you more "bland"?
Today, let's take a moment to write about experiencing the world through your sense of taste. It can be food or whatever way you encounter it. Have you ever been outside while it's snowing and caught a snowflake in your mouth? Describe what your experiences have brought to your life in terms of their flavor.
Write and Review on! ~ Brooke
