Poetry Thursday. Whatever You're Having, Yourself
Today's theme at Poetry Thursday is free. Whatever you fancy. What? No direction? I'm not usually good at sticking to the theme, but I like to know what it is I'm NOT doing! This throws me a bit, so I'm reverting to one of the previous (completely and totally) optional prompts, on the theme of food... which means recipes... so this week's offering is:
Recipe for a Good Old Age
Into a life of regular length
pack, to overflowing, people:
all kinds. Mix them well,
keep adding, especially
tender young ones that chuckle.
Remove any whiners
that rise to the top.
If it seems to be thin or flavourless,
move the whole pot somewhere warm
and bright for a while. Add spices.
Decorate with the unusual and offbeat,
whatever will mark this dish as unique.
Between times of agitation,
let the whole rest.
Admire it. See it as good.
Then test it with a little shake.
Toss it up a bit.
Add another idea, another friend.
Another dose of sunshine.
