What’s the difference?

Here’s to fresh vegetables
sliced in any way.

Though some I avoid,
when I get my way.

I prefer them sizzled,
so the bottom becomes crisp,
unlike the middle.

If my explanation has
made your brain fizzle,
I’ll stop right here.

So you can choose
a vinaigrette…

Leads to another & another

Past the tide,

Fear clenched
beneath my skin
like thorns.

On hand and knees,
I press the keel
into the swell.

Pure bliss
to surf winds
of Imagination.

Where ocean and I
are one.
