I gaze in your maize
and smell your inflorescence.
You’re my Obsession.

For Day 5 of National Poetry Writing Month, the napowrimo.net prompt is to spend some time taking a look at the wacky names of heirloom plants or vegetables. In addition to two great  sources provided, I also came across some very interesting corn seeds from Monsato’s Seminis division, which you can find here. With corn seed names such as Obsession, Temptation and Passion, who wouldn’t want to sink their teeth into one of these corncobs? Further, corn is one of my favorite vegetables to eat. If you have never tried grilled corn on the cob, you definitely need to give that method a try.
