Love is a simple recipe.

First, start off with 3 cups of courage.
Second, fold your courage into a quart of courting.
Third, add a few grains of saltiness and a teaspoon of sugar baby.
Fourth, mix in a peck of affection and a bushel of adoration.
Fifth, begin to boil 2 pints of passion, until bubbly.
Sixth, combine all ingredients until melted together.
Seventh, continue stirring Love, but never allow Love to simmer.
Lastly, add a heaping tablespoon of true love, the same true love that
you found one day near the market by The Sea.

Love is indeed a simple recipe.


Today is the beginning of National Poetry Writing Month/Global Poetry Writing Month. Today’s prompt from Maureen Thorson’s website, napowrimo.net. I have mainly used her prompts in previous years. The prompt for today was to write a poem telling someone how to, or how not to, do something. Perhaps like a simple recipe.
