"Stop and smell the garlic! That's all you have to do." - William Shatner
"The only advice I can give to aspiring writers is don't do it unless you're willing to give your whole life to it. Red wine and garlic also helps." - Jim Harrison
Come into the kitchen – guess what’s cooking?
Ahhh! Take a sniff.
Garlic, tomatoes, a bit of red wine –
ahhhh! Get a whiff.
Good sauce, like a good love story takes time...
you know. As if.
Just a pinch of that and a dash of this,
and while you’re waiting, come give me a kiss.

A Crown for the Past
"There's rosemary; that's for remembrance. Pray, love, remember." ~Shakespeare, Hamlet
Whenever I happen to think of past
times that we’ve shared
it’s usually because I smelled something
and it gets paired
to an event - but there were so many.
like rosemary placed in a diadem
because that is how I remember them.
Symbology in Nature
“Not what we have, but what we enjoy, constitutes our abundance.” ~Epicurus
Abundance is full of symbology:
Walnuts, corn, wheat
and pomegranates all mean a kind of
gift that’s replete
with bounty, though not necessarily
wealth. Life is sweet
when one considers what Nature offers:
there is much abundance in her coffers.
