Taste It

I thought my creativity was dead, 
and I would never be able to write again,
I’ve experienced writer’s block 
my brain was hard as a rock.

Tossing to and fro,
I wonder which way to go.
Rhyme,
verse,
narrative,
nothing was positive.

I tried to write a verse,
but my imagination got worse,
so I went into the kitchen 
to find a way to  begin.

Chopped onion, 
salt and pepper,
rhythm or rhyme?
all forms declined.

Melted butter sauté with thyme
alliteration or blank verse?
I had nothing to converse.

I hang over the kitchen sink              
and think,
but I couldn’t find the missing link . 
                                                 
Chopped broccoli and chicken broth,
limerick, haiku and didactic thought,
a touch of shredded cheese and pepper,
 
 quatrain   
  prose 
  ballad
 whipped cream 
 with tomato salad.
 
I blend and stir,
and bring to boil,
      and
 poetrysoup added the essential oil

    Love it Christine, I love to cook, especially creative gourmet--just get lost in the kitchen on a rainy day--then go write poetry or on a sunny day play golf--life is great--enjoyed the poem!
