You…are my Recipe for Bliss & Emptiness. {Poem}

Peggy Markel

A recipe for Winter Love.

…when I’m plump and sweet

I can satisfy

juicy, running down your chin

I am realized 


Preparing for the first holiday family meal for weary travelers,

I peruse my favorite recipes. 


My boyfriend says, “what are you doing?” I say, “Looking for recipes.”

He says, “You…are my recipe for bliss and emptiness…”


Everything is based on relationship. Everything leans.

Leaning, we love each other and our world. 


Be the deliciousness you want to taste.


Love elephant and want to go steady?
