Zen Forrest

Zen Forrest
4148 Rowan Rd, New Port Richey, FL 34653


How to celebrate the Equinox of Fall
Didn’t want to eat pizza at the mall
Craved gifts from the moistened Earth
Zen Forrest’s vegetables, never a dearth

Began with a pot of Jasmine tea
First tasted when I was a hippie
Then Zen Forrest chicken or veggie roll
Crisp and tasty for body and soul

Lunch for me was a healthy stir fry
Chose tofu, can’t make it this good though I try
Several sauces to choose but coconut is for me
A delicate taste and gluten-free!

A fiery wok of delectable vegetables
Completes this meal of healthy comestibles
Looking at the menu I plan what next to eat
I must return again for a peerless treat!

    Fine, bouncy feel to the rhythm, and the lines scan. The rhyme scheme is delightful!d

    Thank you for liking my Lord Byron poem!

    I wish I could cook food : ( but I suppose better to go to the restaurant.

    Is that a big chair or are you a tiny person? either way, you go girl (there’s a hint of humour in there somewhere)

    I really think your blog is unique. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything quite like it. I enjoy your using poetry for each of the eateries that you have dined. So much variety.This blog makes me hungry.

        Yes, but the problem is I can’t just get in my car and go to them. This area has nothing that can compare to what you write about. If it does, I don’t know about it.
