Bliss of Baking

Written for:  Friday Writings #47:  Hobby Time

"Write about a hobby that brings you peace."

An aroma fills my house–
yeast and sweetness of yellow bread.
Flour and butter spot my blouse,
and disturbing thoughts leave my head.

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.

  1. Oh, that made me smile happily! (Even though cooking of any kind is far from my own idea of fun or peace.)


  2. Cooking can be therapeutic… maybe it is the aroma of comfort food that does it!

    Yes, baking can be fun and therapeutic, and if one is really good at it, one can even make a career of it.
    I like the rhyming in the poem. 🙂
