Fast fry to the jazz beat

 gather the weekday's leftovers

(dish with clovers)

here's the pan

we have no plan


to tarry this rib of cured meat

turn up the heat

with seasoned salt

veggies will waltz


with red onions, shrimps & noodles

we'll make doodles 

here, there; let's eat

leisurely beat

  19. Okay - so I want to be in your kitchen for lessons! This is lovely and it makes me really wish I knew how to sizzle things up in the kitchen. My whole family makes fun of me for my efforts - creative and imaginative, but often horrific flops! I'm still learning. I love your poem and the prompt!

  20. "here's the pan/we have no plan.." Story of my life. this is a graceful(no pun intended) and even elegant little poem of common life, such as Neruda might write. Enjoyed it much.
