The “Feeling” of Flavor

Flavorful is not the chip in front of me.


It is seeing the knowledge in my great-grandmother’s eyes as she looks down


It is the power of her fingers holding up my whole arm


It is knowing that, in touching her hand, I feel a lifetime of experiences


It is the insightfulness I discover when she speaks to me


It is the feel of a tongue that speaks words of wisdom


Flavorful is the kiss from her lips that says, “I love you.”


Compared to these things, the chip has no flavor at all.


Daily word prompt: Flavorful
