Cookies

Oat cookies by For Goodness Cake
Oat cookies by For Goodness Cake

Once there lived a boy, mischievous and joyful,

Curiosity overpowered his fear for a living.

Sometimes they would lead to bountiful discoveries

Other times lead them to deep deep trouble.

~~

When troubles would haunt him,

Run to his mother he would.

For she always knew the magic spell

That would push his troubles far far away.

~~

What was that magic spell?

Cookies – freshly baked with love of course.

Nothing could bother him

As he munched on the warm and crisp biscuits.

~~

Today, long forgotten is the carefree childhood.

His day begins with heavy tensions of what may happen.

His day progresses with pressures of pleasing bosses.

As night befalls, anxiety for the following day creeps in.

~~

Mother sends him his favourite cookies routinely,

However, they lie stacked in the most ignored corner of his room.

If only he would nibble them, he would be transported,

Back to the days where was life celebrated.

~~

If only…..

Mice under a flower

Mouse under a flower painted by Ayushi Shah
Mice under a flower painted by Ayushi Shah

 

The Sun hid behind the dark grey clouds,

Its subdued rays spoke of a defeated battle against the Thunder-Goddess.

The nimbus threatened with a raging cloudburst and frightening lights.

While everyone scattered back to their promising shelter,

Two souls immersed in love, stood strong under a flower.

No blinding lights no roaring thunder could intimidate them.

Thunder laughed at the challenge imposed,

She poured harder and harder with every second.

“You shall fear me!”, She announced with ego held high.

However, with every downpour that came came harder,

The mice embraced each other stronger.

Their soul was one despite being different.

Her ego was bruised,

And try harder she must.

Finally the Thunder registered a feigning victory.

The deluge swept away two mice bodies,

For their soul had departed.

The Thunder laughed at her pseudo-win,

Never knowing the souls were United stronger than ever.

Foccacia Bread

Foccacia Bread

 

The herbed Italiano has a history in ‘baking’. Considered as an early prototype of pizza by some, this yeasted flat bread comes in various names and flavours all around the world. Foccacia bread is one the silent players who doesn’t go bonkers in making its presence felt but without which no meal is complete.
