Hi.. With the holidays upon us, many of you may reflect that in your writings.. may I challenge you to share a "recipe" in verse? I will get things rolling below:

With equal measures
Of love and kind wishes
May everyone here
Dine on each others' "dishes"
Take nourishment from
The delights that we write
And savor the rhymes and the rhymeless
We bite.

Sup slowly, stir gently
Our hearts our utensils.
The page is our plateful
Our thoughts our new pencils.

When sated, we drink
For we've emptied the pot
We rest from our meal
To enjoy what we've got.


I eagerly await all the meals you offer and thank you each for keeping me filled with smiles and thoughts througout the year. Happy Holidays Everyone! love, katy. xox

Really enjoyed this but all I know how to make is baked bean pasta and the only rhyme I have for "pasta" is "disaster" which pretty much sums up my cooking prowess. Have a great one! Mal.
