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.
