“F” Food

Food is fuel.
Food is fun.
Food is flavorful.
Food can be fattening.
Food can be fatal.
Food can be frightening.
Food is family.
Food is a fiesta.
Food is fabulous.
Food is filling.
Food is feeling.
Food is fault.
Food is faithless.
Food is familiar.
Food can be a fad.
Lack of food can make you fade.
Too much food can make you fade.
Food can be a friend.
Food can be a fiend.
Food finds me feverishly looking for freedom.
Food is fuel.


a woman tried to do her wifely deed
by making a fresh batch of mead
she made it quite strong
which might have been wrong
since her hubby fell from his steed

You Can Play Limerick-Off Monday Here


  1. I love all of these Nessa so true! Food is faithless is my favorite =) The limerick is awesome and amusing!

  2. see the cool thing about food is that it brings people together...or can...unless withheld...then it brings war...but then that would be blaming the food...smiles.

  3. What I note is the theme between them: food and drink. Very beautiful painting.

  4. Giggling !! Great work :)

  5. Laughed out loud at the limerick, Vanessa. :)

    Yes, what would we do without food? (especially the ice cream variety!)

  6. Wonderful still life, I love this beautiful painting!

  7. I love eating Feminine Food.....
