Daily Prompt; Ingredients

http://dailypost.wordpress.com, DP, Daily Prompt

What’s the one item in your kitchen you can’t possibly cook without? A spice, your grandma’s measuring cup, instant ramen — what’s your magic ingredient, and why?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us KITCHEN.


Standing in the kitchen

Rag in one hand

Spatula in other

Window open

Feeling the breeze

Grease popping

Bacon frying

Eggs a stirring

Music jamming

I take a moment

And pause to say

Thank-you God

For one more day.

mountainsOh that I may stop in my tracks

Not looking back

No looking forward

Not saying a word

Just breathe deep

No eyes that weep

I will look all around

From heavens to grounds

I will give thanks for today

Get on my knees and pray

For I have had a chance

To live love and dance

And hopefully I will

Live another day still

And remember to say

Thank-you for one more day.

It’s A Beautiful Day

Saying goodbye

Hurt so bad

Heart broken

And so sad

But then

I noticed

The sun                                                                                                 Its-a-Beautiful-Day

Is shining

Toss the cares

Send them high

In the sky

Soul feels lighter

Jumping up

Doing a dance

Starting new

Rid my thoughts

Start brand new

Because it’s

A beautiful day.
