Churches are opening this weekend in the new normal phase of face masks and social distancing.

I bought some lovely dasheen leaves on The Western Main Road (here, in T&T, we say in everyday talk 'callaloo bush' ) and i cooked a pot of Callaloo yesterday. Also, with The Rains the Plumeria blossoms in my garden, are large and full and happy looking.

__ Not only have I never tasted it, I had never known of Callaloo... each and every day we gain new information. Thanks, Gillena! _m

Morning rain; clatters through the Callaloo; tonight's soup.

Hello Gillena, I too had never heard of Callaloo before this! I looked it up and it looks delicious. There is nothing better than making food from right where you live. Thank you for sharing this with us! And thank you for the country rain and those lucky boys!

I often dream of my teenage years and the past long gone. However the memories are good and life has been beautiful but it's sad we always want a bit more!

Callaloo. I assume some type of greens? I would probably love them. I even like poke salad, picked carefully of course. Raised in the country and I do remember those shirtless boys and dirt roads.

Magaly Guerrero said...

I really love the images your haiku paints. The freedom of playing around with skin exposed to rain. I can almost hear the laughter.

I hope you're having a really good week, Gillena.

Marit said...
