Cookie Time

This month, my poetry sisters and I wrote list poems. Mine is half recipe, half doggerel, but it uses at least THREE of the words we needed to choose from, and we were only required to use two, so I consider it a win.

The real win, of course, is getting to write poetry month after month with these beautiful ladies, whom I love.

Cookie Time
Grab the flour, sugar, butter
Stir until it’s mixed up well.
Sift to find the cookie cutters:
Stars will work, perhaps a bell.

Throw the whole tray in the oven
Hope none of the edges singe
Decorate with sprinkles, icing,
Grab the milk: it’s time to binge

Watch a movie, read a book
Tinsel up a Christmas tree
There are still some cookies left:
Two for you and one for me


Here are the links to the rest of my sisters:

Happy Friday, all!

I feel like it's the ultimate gesture of love that two are for ME
This is a perfect little gem of a poem - I love how it all came together!

This is lovely. First, it makes me hungry. Second, I love the snuggliness of it. Third, you are so generous to give me TWO cookies and only take one for yourself--haha! Actually, the generosity of that last line is very cool.

I've come to realize that I adore poems about the kitchen and cooking. I especially love this one, with it's tight lines and rhyme scheme. Thank you for making me remember one of the things I love about this season.
