answering a question

Moroccan couscous contains saffron,
the waiter says
hand-picked tiny crimson threads,
three from each flower
lilac-colored, lovely thousands and more crocuses
ancient fields nature endowed and sustained.

The lobster bisque grazes the table
competes for color.
The artist telling a story
puts colors on the canvas.
