Lickin’ Whiskers

That

Cat eats

Anything

That someone drops

On the floor or leaves

On an unguarded plate

Keep an eye on your yogurt

You must eat all your mac and cheese

Before he decides your lunch is his

And it’s you that must go begging for food

Secret Sorceress

Known

As the

Halloween

Neighborhood elf

She labors all year

In her magic workshop

Transforming garage sale finds

Into a cast of characters

Who will inhabit her home’s front yard

Where they can welcome the trick or treaters

With and Without Raisins

And

The house

Smells of spices

Cloves and nutmeg

Oh yes, cinnamon

She commands the kitchen

For this is her time to bake

The one thing she remembers most

Loaves of pumpkin bread to give as gifts

It’s Christmas like her mother did for years

Be Dazzling

You

Are too

Beautiful

Not to live big

After all, mountains

Live life lovely and large

And the sea is a stunner

How enchanting, the Milky Way

Their size never keeps them from shining

And the world responds with admiration

deviled eggs perhaps

 

Find

The time

Learn to cook

Some healthy foods

Some funky cheat foods

Learn to bake party cakes

How about grilling outdoors

Just focus on one thing food wise

And be the best maker of that thing

In any case you’ll never go hungry
