All The Food That’s Fit To Eat

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – Prompt #261 – All The Comfort (foods) of Home
“Write the comfort of home in the foods that satisfied and warmed you inside and out.”

When hands were stiff and numb
from playing in the snow
I’d wrap them ’round steaming mug
of marshmallow covered cocoa.

Wolfing down chocolate chip cookies
still too hot from the oven,
I’d burn my tongue if clumsy,
though worth it, caused I loved ’em.

Split pea soup, and burgers
with hand-cut crispy fries,
stuffed cabbage always a favorite.
Remember rice pudding; forget waist size.

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.
