Cooking – A celebration!


The chimney waited daily
For the riot of aromas
The palette of spices
Held on to the shelf with pride
And the apron witnessed
The gastronomic delights
Shaping up from a dough
Shredded into fine chops
Soaked overnight some
Marinated, the others
Brewed, baked, braised…
Each one a masterpiece
Of the heart behind the hands……
And went on and on and on
Daily, religiously-
The chef’s preparations
From the grocery shop
To the kitchen
From the dishes
To the cutlery
A table done up beautifully
A cherry inviting the lips
Smoky fumes
Delighting the eyes
And the tiny belly
Exuding satisfied expansion
Was the trophy
For the perfect celebration!
