This is "show dont tell" in its finest form, I think. Describe a taste. Say, we start with Chocolate. Describe chocolate to a person with no taste. Sounds hard, doesnt it? Try it. Describe your taste then post another for the next poster.

Are we starting with chocolate? Can it be in poem form?

Chocolate

molten in the mouth

next prompt: mango

Chili Pepper

A fresh, crisp, cool crunch turns,
In a shocking instant
To searing heat
Washing wet flame,
Over lips and tongue to
Painful tingling of
Panting, swollen flesh.
