One Liner Wednesday – Cooking Lesson

I have always enjoyed cooking but have never attended classes. I learned the basics from my mother growing up and then as an adult it was all about experimentation and following trends. So without any formal training this is what I do when the recipe calls for ‘reducing the wine’ Am I wrong? What do you do?

For Linda G. Hill’s One Liner Wednesday

Close the Door – A Quadrille

Close the Door

As the day ends
It is time to reflect
on events that were
less than perfect

Annoyances, delays
that did gnaw, irritate
To be tossed away
for it’s time to celebrate

Door closed
a day to forget
My glass is full
Wine’s my outlet

De Jackson (aka Whimsy Gizmo) is hosting
D'Verse Poets Monday Quadrille and has
prompted us with the word "Close"
A Quadrille is a poem of exactly 44 words
excluding the title

Flower and Flour

Flower and Flour

Flowers in the rain showers
Drinking their wine
Soaking in the goodness
Drenching the vine

Flowers for senses
Pleasing the eyes and nose
Calla Lilies, Freesias
And the red, red, rose

Flowers for healing
Lavender and Eucalyptus
Remedies for ailments
From fruits of the citrus

Flour from corn and wheat
Rye and barley
Ground in the mill
Making good whisky

Flour in the kitchen
Mixing into the cake
Self-rising goodness
For the perfect bake

Flour in cookies
A different bouquet
Confections galore
A sweet array

Flower or Flour
Both provide pleasure
And healing qualities
Measure for measure
