Katz Quadrille

Cabbage calls
Honey moons
Grapes grope
Scoby sirens sing
Flour water waits

Attuned for
Wild whooshes

Yowling yeasts descend
Bashful bacteria nuzzle up

Sauerkraut kimchi cha-chas
Meandering mead
Charismatic chablis
Kiwi kombucha kicks
San Franciscan sourdough

Fermentation frenzy
Build it and they will come

Kim, Writing from North Norfolk, is today’s host for dVerse.  Kim says:
This week I’d like you to take any meaning, form or compound of the word wild, and write a poem of exactly 44 words (not counting your title), including the prompt word.

    1. Good for you, Bjorn (see chart) and fun and taking your health into your own hands. I’ve made them all except for the chablis, and the sourdough was from wild yeast floating in the air.


  1. Fermentation frenzy — build it, they will come…
    “Sauerkraut kimchi cha-chas

    LOVING these lines!
    My son-in-law is very much into the fermentation aspect you describe here. We laughed and snapped a photo of a sign we saw last Sunday at a vendor’s booth at the local farmers’ market in San Diego:
    T. G. I. F.
    Thank God it’s fermented

    1. Oh so cool, Lillian. I like the idea of young people using the old ways. The thing I’ve found most resistance to be others is the kombucha. The only thing they connect to is when I tell them how much a bottle of it costs from the store. Thanks for the new meaning for TGIF.
