You are marvelled at by many.
You turn heads,
and create disbelief amongst the common.
Spiralling from base to central pointed location.
A star you are in the world of veg.
Unknown still to many who have yet to witness your striking beauty.
Ah, but you are emerging.
Although still a novelty to most,
to me you are star player from afar.
From another galaxy.
From another way.
Oh Romanesco, you are here to stay!
An heirloom seed from the land of Rome,
you have travelled far to find a new home.
You are rich in all that is good for the soul,
the body, the mind and the whole of the world.
Your florescent glow is bold.
An unrealistic shade of green for the eye to behold.
Yet, you are real.
You are true to your form.
You are an abstract blip amongst the norm.
Thank you for all the wide eyed wonder that you create with you life.
Thank you for your willingness to be cut with a knife.
Thank you for the food that you are.
Oh Romanesco, you are a star!
