Uniting to celebrate !

When a blogger friend Dhiren, celebrates his wife's birthday and Friendship Day, by making a Pizza for she and her friends, that too, complete with step-by-step photographs , one can only applaud ......and salivate, and admire his self control as he gets in for a closeup, without eating the cheese himself .

Don't know about you, but I can smell the yum stuff here. (The pizza is happening in Bharuch, Gujarat (on India's west coast)....)...........RUSH !


(all photographs by Dhiren Shah)


The humble onion
resting on a grainy bed,
groaning
under the weight
of the bossy tomato
all puffed up
because
it "knows" the sauce;
The peaceful capsicum,
trying its best
to
stay away
from the
red bossy types.

Chilliflakes
in the air,
oregano and pepper
fighting ,
and
its time
for the
blanket of cheese
to smother
all these fights.

They fight,
but melt
in the heated atmosphere...

Against
a common enemy ,
(Dhiren),
to fight
and go down,
with pepsi,
United !
