Poem for a Tuesday — “Taste” by Joann White

All sweet on my tongue

all golden blue-sky

day all thrumming with

song all slide ’round my

mouth all trickle down

my chin all here all

now all this all gone.

Joann White is a writer, pastor, spiritual director, and enthusiast of wild places. Sometimes she finds God in the moment, like in eating an apple. She says she isn’t a poet, but Ross Gay makes her want to be.
