Can You Give Me The Recipe


 A recipe on how to live life?
 How is it?
 Magazines offer both
 on diet recipes
 herbal medicines
 and cake recipes ...
 But not the recipe for
 life itself
 Life is what you make it to


 Do you want to grow old
 or is your life short
 Do you want to get rich
 or always be poor
 If you are successful or
 not .... who knows ....
 Everything is up to yourself


 If you do your best
 you need no recipe
 Live your life and grow old and gray
 Your life has many
 good memories, and those are the
 we hide in our inner
 Happiness in life is to have warm
 memories in the heart

    Recipes are a mixture of ingredients so in life if you dont mix with other souls then the recipe is no good, i think you are mixing very well, Anne. Thanks, blessings Carl,

    For each one, his own special recipe in life I guess, Anne. But love is the one common ingredient in them all. Sweet poem by you here.

    For me generous portions of Love, a sprinkle of sarcasm, generous portions of laughter, good health or at the least a good attitude all wrapped with a house full of family and friends, good music, food and a glass of wine. All infused with the Love of God.

    I really like this..I guess you've got to make some mistakes and figure it out along the way. Thanks for always commenting on my work. You are very sweet! I see you've been writing Haikus. I wrote a Nonet which was fun. Check it out if you have time. I always like it when you look at my poems. xxoo Holly Moore
