Fruit Salad with Jelly, Cream and Ice Cream

It is a tub full, rich milky almond pistachio scoops of Ice Cream drowning in the finest homemade cream as white as a fresh lily petal, studded with blood red jelly, the cream sprinkles over the red of the jelly at places and complements perfectly to the fresh fruity aroma emanating from the tub. This, it owes to the assortment of fresh juicy fruits that make up the salad part. And it is quiet a pastiche, emerald green Australian grapes, they are chilled, translucent, juicy and apple textured. Then there are orange petals, their juice swollen beads spilling out into the Ice Cream and jelly. The litchi is lush pink with the seed removed and ready to melt its luscious soul into your taste buds. Chunky Pineapples and velvet soft Muskmelons join the riot, the ice cream steams into the hot Bangalore air and it is a pleasure to see the red jelly playing with the orchard in snow. I like to have an occasional scoop of pure soft cream which is just right in it’s sweetness and divine in it’s texture. The jelly is best when had with the Litchi and Grape and the Ice Cream goes well with the Orange and Musk. I like the pineapple, cracks filled with the chilled steaming Ice Cream.

    After the storm, my mind cleared.

    And a high wind arose and blew the tropics north.

    running quartz crystals through a blender.

    sand through your engines.

    bubbles in your bays.

    estuaries reaching out toward forbidden seas…

    sand through your eyes.

    Calm as baby’s breath

    as peaceful as the storm’s eye

    Clouds spread and drawn with rough strokes of stratospheric winds

    a warm and windy tropical day.

    Black water at dusk.

    Lighting on the horizon.

    Warm winds coming in across the darkening waters.

    A flash of white wings as an egret takes flight.

    And Thunder like God clearing his throat.

    Morning star in the still of the clear, dark waters.

    a sky as clear eyed as a young girl.

    bruised and tattered storm remnants limp off in the gathering light.

    Tickled her fancy.

    giggling all the day long.

    pretty good for a Saturday.

    Clouds on the lake floating aimlessly by.

    She smiled big–grinned really.

  2. say, won’t you take the language easy at least with respect to food items…that too ice-cream !!!!
    I love it…
    you know many people used to say Agatha Christie novels are more fun thanks to her description of food …so, at 65 or 70 whenever you retire from maths and start your novel writing, you might remind people of christie even if you don’t write mysteries :)))
