Cooking A Morning Poem - Poem by Seema Jayaraman

I hemmed and wrecked my head
to remember and write out a recipe
to pen the perfect set of words - poetry
toasting each dawn - a tasty savory

rightful phrases minced and diced
tossed vaguely remembered feelings
deep fried in intense emotions
layered mix of verbs and rhymes

all that time consuming baking
with mostly absent ingredients
I gave a large roundabout
instead settled a quick scramble

a fluffy light lay of words
spicey at times soothing garnished
imagery - healthy dish of simple poem
I began to serve each day

    Thanks Wes for visting and your comments, I do have a few rhyming ones too, inviting you to read them, some are meant to shock but most deal with nature and its creatures I observe around me..you most probably will like my musings Why Blame Me A Blood Moon, Dawns Aural littany, my baby and a spate of haikus I added recently. Thank you.
