Whisk Affairs

All the entries are now in. I will be making my selections soon. You will just have to wait a bit longer. We had so many participants and entries this year for our 2022 Great Bloggers Bake-Off, which is amazing. Thank you ALL!! None of this could have been possible without all of you and your support and enthusiasm. While you wait, here is another poem to enjoy, by Punam. You can check out Punam’s blogs at Whisk Affairs, https://paeansunpluggedblog.wordpress.com/

Whisk Affair

When my mind is in a whirl
unable to stay in line
I then give my whisk a twirl
shifting focus works each time

shaky hands calmly measure
exactness begs attention
deftly effecting erasure
of the nerve-racking tension

as vanilla marries nutmeg
and butter embraces flour
I beat blues as I beat eggs
sugar counters my mood sour

My worries scatter and dart
as I wield my trusty whisk
mellowness cradles my heart
the sweet, warm smell a balmy mix

satiated sighs, leftover crumbs
are my craven heart’s refuge
when depredation makes me numb
baking, antidote to news deluge.

Written for Mel.
