This week two wonderful events occurred that led to this post.
First, my friend Molly posted a photograph on facebook that I fell head over heels for -- and gave me permission to use it as a writing prompt.
Then, I discovered Jama's Alphabet Soup is hosting this week's Poetry Friday round-up. I simply love the creative combination of foodie, photographer, writer and blogger Jama is. I look forward to each new post from her.
All I can possibly do in response is to share a recipe poem.
Hogan, Molly. “Photograph.” Facebook Post, 13 Oct. 2019, www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10219530462877483&set=pcb.10219530476637827&type=3&theater.
Oh, this is lovely! You maintain the recipe theme so clearly and cleverly! I especially appreciate "Slice an autumn sunrise lengthwise. / Strain juice with cloud-cloth / into chilled metal bowl. / Whisk in reflections / of winter-bare trees." A perfect fit for the photo.ReplyDelete
LOVE this poem so much, Linda!! So clever and whimsical, and such lovely images. As JoAnn said, you developed the recipe format so brilliantly. :) "Top with whipped sunrise" *swoon*ReplyDelete
Oh my goodness. Breakfast is SERVED! You cook up poetry just right, Linda. :)ReplyDelete
This is so gorgeous. I want to come to your house for breakfast!ReplyDelete
A delicious recipe for this lovely photograph.ReplyDelete
Hi, Linda. What a wonderful title for this poem. You incorporated cookbook words so well -- I especially liked "softness peaks."ReplyDelete
I saw Molly's photo on Facebook and fell in love with it too. Nice recipe to accompany it!ReplyDelete
Perfection...both the photo and your recipe poem. Double WOWs!ReplyDelete
Like you, I was amazed by Molly's photo. Your poem tops it off perfectly!ReplyDelete
Linda, you are so clever to take two separate ingredients--photo and recipe--and combine them to create a masterpiece. You've woven in so many wonderful images that I can't pick a favorite. Well done!ReplyDelete
How clever you are to come up with a recipe poem to match Molly's photo! I especially love "Whisk in reflections/of winter-bare trees." Well done, Linda!ReplyDelete
Your recipe is scrumptious, Linda!ReplyDelete
