Recipe For Relationship (NaPoWriMo, Day 2)

“…here is our prompt (as always, optional). Today, I’d like you to write a poem inspired by, or in the form of, a recipe!”


A cup of This, pinch of That

Generous sprinkling of Somethings

10 pound sack of Laughter…

Sift together while humming

Pour over 2 liters of Tears

Drain:  half-pound of Memories

Best forgotten, and equal part

Words better unsaid

Add:  fresh Blue Sky

Jar of Rainbow Relish

Honesty, Loyalty, Loving Affirmations

Use Box of Mercy to sweeten Bitter days

Stir in 1 pound each:

Compassion’s Comfort

Encouraging Support

1/3 Cup Sage Advice,

Tempered with Permission

6 Tablespoons each:

Respect, High Regard

Season with Spice, “Occasional Surprise”

And bunches of fragrant Patience

4 gallons Faithful Prayer, melted with


Blend everything with Wisdom, well-aged

Spread evenly in large round pan

Bake in heart most passionate

Till slightly crisp

Drizzle with Secrets Shared

Garnish with handful:  Hopes, Dreams & Wishes

Serve with goblets of “Poetry” (mellow wine)

Wrap leftovers loosely in Ties that Entwine

Store in open place for space to Breathe

… Can last through changes, challenge Life will bring

Reheat with embraces, Love and “Sweet Nothings”
