There must therefore be time for us to both discover
If we are maybe right for each other

Premium Member LOVE POTION

Who hasn’t heard of the notion
The secret recipe for love potion
Can detonate a frenzied explosion
While stirring carnal emotion
Wild winds setting in motion
The sails ablaze on blue ocean
Stars above burn in devotion
Igniting the spark of implosion
Catapulting a heart in commotion

Fried Chicken, Made of Awesome
I think it is time that I take a stance
on an issue of supreme importance,
I’ve stayed quiet on it for far too long,
to keep living a lie feels so wrong,

Premium Member Idling


Cool cold froth
slides across their pages
they whirl their congratulatory comments
like pucks across ice crystal cut sharp and precise 
waiting for return compliments
basting their words with oily accomplishment
slick and to strict recipe
baking like fat turkeys 
with temperatures
mild and appetites easily

Jesus taught us to pray, "Deliver us from evil".  We are often confronted
With a choice of evils in which we do not have the luxury of ignoring but
Rather a challenge to engage both the secular and Christian culture. ...Read More

Always remember
To never say that she must ask your mom
For a recipe, that’s disastrous!
Always remember
To laugh at yourself and with her,
Never, at her.

Wife always comes first,
Always remember
To let your past remain in...Read More

Unsung heroes of the open sea,
Not captain, nor navigator he,
Not the brave sailors before the mast,
The lowly ship’s cook we think of last,
Who makes meals from hardtack ‘n jerky.

Seamen always needed a ship’s cook,
A chef who needs no recipe...Read More

So versatile is the potato.
It’s orange; it’s yellow; it’s white; it’s sweet.
It’s baked or boiled; it’s mashed or fried.
It’s served with poultry, with fish or with meat.

I love to cook, and I have for you
three recipes for potato dishes.

Emerald Moon
I see the darkness
Inspired by your heart
Lit by wicked flame
A soul lost to chaos
Soon to be lost
Soon to be dead

To see past emerald moon

Know in selfish sacrifice
This is selfless gratitude
Painted in intricate lamentations
