I can’t taste homemade icing without thinking of my Aunt Beckie.


Day 27

Be sure to stop by the Facebook page where most of us haiku poets meet to get a prompt and share our work. There are a lot of really good and unique poems on that page. Today’s prompt was “zwieback” which is a type of hard cracker or bread. I will eat soup year ’round but some people only like soup when it’s cold. How about you?

If you are unsure of the rules of haiku  and want to know more, then go to my What is Haiku? page.

Also, stop by the Facebook page where most of us poets meet to get a prompt and share our work. It would also be nice of you to go to that page and click Like on people’s posts to encourage them in their writing.

Today’s prompt was “zucchini”. Have you ever had zucchini bread? It is like banana bread with zucchinis. Whenever my mom makes certain food I remember eating it as a child. The memories come back with the taste and smell.

Poor Man Cinquain

  Sinful Hunger

He spied

the freshly baked bread in the store,

hunger gnawed at his belly,

so the poor man

stole it.


Here is a cinquain I wrote a while back. It was inspired by a prompt on Twitter, but it was written so long ago I don’t know which prompt account inspired me to write it.

A quote about fire.

A house is no home unless it contain food and fire for the mind as well as for the body. -Margaret Fuller



What things do you have in your home that fuel your family’s inner fire?

Challenge Post #23

Day 23- Something you crave for a lot

Hmm… like food, or something intangible like peace and understanding??

I’m going to go with the easy one and say blueberry muffins.

It’s Saturday and even though its very hot outside, we have places to go. Luckily I baked myself some blueberry muffins on Thursday so I have had an awesome breakfast. I just love blueberry muffins. Sweet, but not too sweet. Light and fluffy.

Okay, I’m going to go have another one. You all have a great weekend!!
