Perhaps you’ve noticed that some of my blog posts contain poems written by Iris Zuares.
Wondering who is Iris?
Iris and I met on Flickr, actually it was Iris’s initiative as she wrote a poem about my cookie “Carousel”, and many more poems followed after that.I’m trying to put them all together. In time Iris’s poems became her signature response on Flickr, she wrote hundreds of poems, though she doesn’t keep the count.
I’m envisioning these to be put into a small book someday.
Food and Poems.
What a perfect marriage!
Perhaps you were touched by Iris’s limerick too?!
Feel free to let us know about it.
Here is the very first limerick Iris wrote for me.
I would go for a ride with you
on carousel horses painted blue
the details are great
I hope it’s not late
to be able to eat one too
Today I’d like you to meet a woman, wife, devoted mother of 3, artist and a friend.
Iris is full of surprises, witty words, bold statements,
making her artistic visionary through poems, drawing, vivid paintings, stories, beaded pillows, artwork.
Iris is simply wonderful!
Iris and I share passion for food.
You may not believe it, but love and food have a lot in common.
I’m sure you’ve heard it before:
“Love Goes Through Stomach”
Well, whoever invented that saying , seems, must have been right.
Although I like to dine in a nice restaurant, there is something about creating food myself, something about a smile on my man’s face when he’s eating dinner I made for him.

I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I have.
Food was excellent, calorie free but only it left me a little hungry…:-)
