Recipe for Life

a pinch
of caution.
A dash of pride.
One dollop of charm.
Add big lumps of kindness.
Mix with a sense of humour.
Throw in a large handful of love.
Blend it all together with patience.
And you will make a happy cake of life.

Margaret --1/11/2011

    Margaret is this for the happy poem contest? I too was thinking of doing a ten line etheree.(great minds!) Anyway, I reread her rule, and unless I am wrong, I think she said it had to be at least twelve lines. I hope I am wrong on that, because I really had an idea for an etheree. (oh, wait, I see Carolyn is congratulating you. Maybe this one won in Brian's contest then?)
