Recipe For Success

Written for:  Poetics Aside #446 – Write a cooking poem.

Creativeness, spontaneousness–
my guides to cooking. Change
the recipe, add or subtract
ingredients. Never use a
scanty amount of garlic.
Spice it up. Use fresh herbs.
Golden raisins are a nice
touch in many dishes, a soupçon
of surprising sweetness. Neatness?
Not me. I do not clean up as
I go. Mostly push used items
to one side. Attention to what
I am preparing is vital. Oh,
and always add love to every dish.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.

    Yes on the garlic. Raisins? Seldom think of them. I’ve seen your meal plans – you look like a great cook.
