She spins, and she spins, and she spins with sprigs of lemon verbena adorning her golden ringlets. Ever more intricately she spins, weaving her tapestry of quince and pear, a mesh of delicate honeydew and cantaloupe, a net to make the master fisherman papaya green with envy. Oh, how she spins barefoot upon the sand, alluring on the tippy tops of her sea salt dusted toes, luring in her ancient dance succulent scallops and little oysters, Kumamotos in fact. Her perfume is the clean crisp brine of the sea, with cherry plums aplenty upon the branches of her tree, and oh how she spins, bringing fruitfulness and plenty, her life a worldly circuitous and prolix path. Ahh if only she would stop spinning long enough to be caught in threads of saffron so fine; I would hold her with ceviche, in leche de tigre, on the central coast of Peru, or perhaps persuade her with paella and una caña in the Basque region of Spain.
