Composition in red, white, and Whole wheat


Here is where my creativity went today:




This pie has cranberries, Granny Smith apples, lots of white sugar, apple cider vinegar, the juice and rind from one small orange, a little lemon juice, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, almond extract, tapioca for thickening, and a homemade whole wheat crust.

Goodness, I hope it tastes all right. It’s pretty, at least. 

Happy pre-Thanksgiving cooking frenzy!













I Need Your Help With a Housewarming Party!

In short, Jane is fan-frigging-tastic and you should be reading her poetry.

Café Philos: an internet café

I need your help to hold a housewarming party for Jane Basil at her new blog.  The door prize for helping out is a 30 USD shopping trip on Amazon.

If I came across a Jane Basil poem published in the Oxford Companion to English Poetry, I would not think it out of place.

Skeptical?  Go and read Promises!  Read just that one Basil poem.  Then tell me whether you concur with me.  Your call, but please don’t make your call until at least you have read Promises.

There’s a light in your eyes that I’ve never seen before. I can’t read it.
Then I’ll read your lips. Kiss me.
They’re cold.
Is it over?
What did you find out about yourself?
I don’t think I’ll ever understand.
I miss you already, and you haven’t even walked out the door.
It’s only a matter of time.
I am so lonely. I’m lonelier with you by my side, than I think I would be alone.
You left the house warm. But you returned different.
What did you find out about yourself?
Do you know what I lost for you?
Do you know what I would lose again?
I would clutch you close, if there was a shred of connection left between us. Even a filament is enough to start a bridge. But the space between you and me is already too vast. No rope, no tree roots, not even a spiderweb.
I see you across the expanse and think, what made our bridge fall?
Why won’t you talk about it?
What did you find out about me?
