Eddo Callaloo and other poems – By Dmitri Allicock



By Dmitri Allicock

Oh delicate leaves cooked by the bundle

Noble nourishment not only for the humble

Market or garden fresh for the pickings

 Guyanese callaloo called one foot chicken

Poi, carila, bhagi, and spinach of the land of green

Stew of callaloo, a good alternative to bora bean

Coconut milk, salt beef, shrimp or dried fish

Richly prepared and served over splendid rice dish

 A side of fried yellow plantain of aromatic smell

Mouthwatering Eddo Callaloo that taste so well

    Your poems and accompanying pictures are beautiful and nostalgic. Hope you plan on having them published. Love the one about candle flies. We call them fireflies and during the spring and fall season they grace my backyard with their illuminating presence.

    The poem about the calaloo is beautiful, I remember as a child my grandma cooking this for me. The only ingredient was coconut milk. black pepper and salt served with rice. It was so tasty. As an adult I follow her instructions with more ingredients., yet it cannot taste like grandma. Thanks for the Memories Dmitri, keep on writing.
