Baking 1, 2, 3

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Rule of Thirds.”

As it’s been way too long between blogs (due to an unexpected hiatus on account of being unwell recently), I also decided to stay on topic and combine my Weekly Photo Challenge response with another (admittedly pitiful) Poetic Hat Trick attempt for Writing201‘s third challenge.

This time the theme was Trust, the form was Acrostic, and the device Internal Rhyme:

Beaters, to mix things quick (and later lick),
Apron, to catch the spills or whatever doesn’t stick;
Knife, to help take the cake (or muffins) out,
Ingredients, which a recipe can’t do without;
Nervous, you don’t have to be, a recipe is all you need,
Go for it – you’ll be so proud of what you achieve!

Enjoy (or jest) at will 🙂

    The first line of your poem reminds me of a commercial for Dairy Queen’s Brownie Blizzard.

    Happily, your poems ends with more positive results.:)


    • Thanks so much for the kind feedback @sassycare! That’s been my biggest struggle with Writing 101 – keeping the poetry within the confines of my blog’s subject, no matter how tempting it is to stray 🙂


      • So far, you’re successful! You’re a real, good writer. And your posts are always the light, feel-good type. Just what I need after reading a lot of serious, dramatic articles these days (which are my thing most of the time). Visiting your blog gives me the balance. Always love dropping by. 🙂
