Homey Aromas

Composed 10/14/16
Description: For today’s Daily Prompt: Candle.

Perhaps someday
When I move far away
I can keep you by my fireplace
And some by my bedside
But certainly in the kitchen
I’ll keep one of you alight
So it smells like Mom’s baking
Cookies, cakes, and
Pumpkin pie

My Favorite Treat

Composed 4/6/16
Description: I’m actually going with NaPoWriMo’s suggested prompt for Day 6! What is the prompt, you ask? Well, to write about food.

You are white, creamy snow on a hot steamy beach
With light, fluffy clouds in rainbow shades overlooking
Despite your soft appearance, though
You’re dark and gritty within
A solid layer of raw, chewy texture
And a river of sinful silk
But then there is your deepest self
A rich, dark core of delectable sweetness that one must dig for
You are so many things, so many contradictions
But perhaps that’s why I love you
Love to taste you
Ice cream cake

For Emergencies (mostly)

Description: For Writing 201: Day 8! An ode using apostrophe and a drawer theme was my challenge for this day. I wanted to write a serious ode, because the last ode I wrote was about fruit loops, I believe… But, in the end, that didn’t happen. However, it rings very true to me… and hopefully to some of you.

When mountains of stress fall upon
When friends betray and lovers reject
And bodies curl with symptoms ill
There is only one comfort that truly succeeds
In dulling the sorrow, the anger, and grief
It breaks and melts troubles away
It sweetens the most sour of days

Oh, open for me, dear drawer!
Reveal to me my life sustainer!
Let me see
Let me taste
My chocolate
