Day Eight: Pleasure
Because of the wind, the day is freezing
Because of the wind, we all are sneezing
Because of the wind, I have a warm cup of coffee
Because of the wind, I get a delicious piece of cake
Because of the wind, I can turn up the heat.
If there was no wind, the day wouldn’t freeze,
or I wouldn’t sneeze,
we wouldn’t have that cup of coffee
or the piece of cake
And would have no reason to turn up the heat.
I’d invite the wind with pleasure,
Because of it I can have coffee, a piece of cake
And a nice warm house.

I couldn’t get a colored image, so had to post the black and white one.
In response to today’s one-word prompt: Brick
Brick by brick they built their house
And furnished it room by room.
Still they felt something missing
What it was they couldn’t tell.
Their years of saving gone in a flash
They sat down husband and wife
Sadly wondered is this all there is to life!
Intro to Poetry, Day Seven: Flavor
I remember reading the quote
“Sharing food with another human being
is an intimate act that should not be
indulged in lightly.___ M.F.K Fisher
Here is my dinner party fiasco, it happened two weeks ago.
The first thing went wrong was,
I couldn’t find the
cut of beef I wanted.
The butcher announced
there was a shortage,
how can it be it’s always
available? I said.
I decided to cook
it’s okay I told my daughter,
she insisted I make it spicier.
Not just the beef
but the chicken too,
don’t be afraid to add
a lot of, cayenne.
“Too much cayenne,
will make it too hot,”
“Don’t worry Mom
they can handle it,”
I began my cooking
the red powder,
the vegetables met
the same fate.
I kid you not I poured
on, the cayenne, never did
I, think of the consequences.
The food was ready,
for,the guests, who came
smiling , with boxes of chocolates,
The table was set,
The food arranged,
it looked presentable
but was it, eatable is a question,
I did not ask myself?
Soon it became clear
something, was wrong
instead of eating
I knew then my,
The guests went
They smiled as they
announced, the food was
they were too full and
couldn’t, eat any more!
Instead of the tweets I’ve selected ,”Good Reads Popular Quote.”
Here Is the one I always liked.
” If you tell the truth, you don’t have to remember anything.”__ Mark Twain
I believe in this quote, many a time I’ve had the occasion to catch the person who is lying. This happened more than I care to count.
My Mom once asked me how do you know this person lied to you. My answer was, “her story changes every time she talks.”
A liar can never remember what he/she said the first time.
