What's been happening over here ...

It may seem like I haven't been posting much in the recipe department lately. There's a fairly good explanation for this. I've been delving into poetry deeper than ever before, studying the likes of poet Jacques Prevert and beat poet Charles Bukowski. I've been reading more and writing more! I've also been writing to several poetry prompt blogs. A prompt blog provides new ways to get or keep moving on the writing journey. What this means for you, dear readers, is I haven't spent much time in the kitchen. Don't get me wrong, I still cook, just nothing new or fancy these days. Seems I fall back on the tried and true when I get this involved. Just thought you should know, in case you noticed ...

And since it's glorious summer here, I'd like to share this wonderful old poem I just came across ...

Summer Song
Wanderer moon
smiling a
faintly ironical smile
at this
brilliant, dew-moistened
summer morning,—
a detached
sleepily indifferent
smile, a
wanderer's smile,—
if I should
buy a shirt
your color and
put on a necktie
where would they carry me?

~William Carlos Williams (1883-1963)
