Poem Ingredients

Many ingredients bake writing inspiration. This recipe combines a stirring sensation: Heaps of desires never realized as marinated in teary sore eyes; Quantities of wide open spaces caramelized by nature’s appeal; Ageless genuine emotional traces sifted thru heart rendered graces; Equal parts family and romantic love as roasted within, without and above; Measured creamed ideals of peace with blanched pain and battle grease; Diced wishes braised with thrill bearing aromas of tangy heat or chill; Slices of awe from a glorious tree breaded with traits strong and free; I do not forget sour spices of greed dusted with mankind’s violent seed; A mix of fears dredged in anxiety with stress jelled in complexity; and, lastly, faith garnished spirit grown in a soul conscious thicket. If able, I mix love with ingredients above before sampling my recipe once warmed up. If savory, I enjoy serving in poetry cups.

Caycay, I am so happy to see this brilliant poem of yours made the grade, and from a former comment i made on it, it seems that it's one that got screwed in the past, but now it is getting its just desserts! Way to go, sweetie! Congratulations.

caycay, this was REALLY nice. I loved the way you used cooked terms in almost every line. That made it stand out as unique and clever. Too bad nobody is doing the Screwed kind of contests any more. This would make a great entry!! Also the last line was awesome!
