  6. Hey Lady Sammi C, Baking Tasty Bewitchery

    Hoping all is well, as I am sure it is, not like you to be anything other than calm and serene like a millpond in a dream.

    I thought at first glance I’d have a go at the prose but the three words I conjured up, ‘Because it’s dry’, didn’t stretch to fill your criteria, so I had a wee go at the poem instead. I started with the word particle then built the poem around that. It’s was a bit of fun on what is a wild and windy rain lashed day. I trust you are faring better wherever you may be.

    ~ Fragmented ~ By ~ Dewin Nefol ~

    I am not categorical, I am an indefinite article, a metaphysical particle.
    Incontrovertible I am unobservable, a snippet, a shatter a splinter in matter: I am inextricably scattered.
    Classically rhetorical I am disproportional, always indiscernible, adorable yet anarchical, I am
    Disintegrated fragmented space, metallurgical suborbital with lightening quick pace, I race make haste,
    I am the Mercurial metaphorical with snap crack pop and fizz, the Aeronaut and Wizard with panache zip and whizz.

    Saturday afternoon with gloom outside the pane, perfect for a happy film to compensate for the rain. Of course it will be Disney and as I am feeling tuneful; the film Happy Feet springs readily to mind. And so I shall away to immerse and indulge, and we shall meet at another time here in the Saturday Kitchen. Until then, be uncompromising yet merciful in all you do 🙂 Oh and hugs to the Grimalkins.

    God Bless, Namaste 🙂

    • Hey Dewin! “Calm and serene like a millpond in a dream”? I wish. This is something I aspire to 🙂 lol

      Your poem’s fantastic! “Mercurial metaphorical with snap crack pop and fizz” – love it 🙂

      Happy Feet – good choice. I myself made time for The Lion King last week and enjoyed singing along to those fun tunes 😉

      With Guan Yin, the goddess of mercy watching over me (I have a small statuette of her on my desk), I strive to view the world with compassion and mercy also 🙂

      The Grimalkins say hugs back 🙂

      Brightest Blessings!
