Taste and See

What does it mean to taste and see?
“You will not die,” the liar said
referring to the garden’s forbidden fruit.
“Your eyes will open; you’ll be like God,
knowing both evil and good.”

What does it mean to taste and see?
God delivered the fugitive David
to a safe encampment under guard
by a watch angel of the merciful Lord.
O taste and see the Lord is good!

What does it mean to taste and see?
What synesthesia connects our food
with vision? Two men on the road
to Emmaus discovered the risen Lord
when the stranger blessed and broke the bread.

What does it mean to taste and see?
What does it mean for you and me?
