Cookbook

  I'm making a cookbook
Pasting, writing, grappling
To cram every bit of space
With succulent chicken biryani
Crisp curries, spicy sauces
Honeyed desserts and sugared snapshots'
Of moments that cooking will create.

Slice, saut', stir
Chop, blend and boil
Fry, grind or puree.
Mixing and marinating
With a ladle full of laughter
A generous helping of love.

I dream of little piles of spices
Color of autumn leaves
Ripe red, mustard yellow
Mud browns and mild greens.
Tasting all the while
The flavors they'll add to a meal.

Simmering in the soup
Will be last night's squabble
Baking with brownies'
Hugs to warm the heart
Sizzling with sunny-side-ups
Smiling memories of a delicious night.

Moments as piquant as peppercorns
Mixed in any meal and ladled onto a palette'
Textures that'll dance on taste buds
And flavors that'll brew in my cookbook.
