Bake Story!

Nancy’s photo challenge to post something baked.

Baking is a hobby

I often indulge in

aromas from the oven

waft, to fill in my home

with heavenly scents.

Sidlak – The Affair!


Hot affair

measured ingredients

adept hands make gentle love

surrender to the passionate heat

tantalizing brown cookies satiate the sweet cravings!


Sidlak poetry (sid/lak) is a structured poetry consisting of 5 lines with 3-5-7-9 syllables AND A COLOR. The last line must be a COLOR that describes the whole poem ( no restriction on syllables) or the feelings of the writer.


Haibun – Baking Affair!


I get into an indulgent mood and decide to do some baking. The apron clings on to me. As I gently caress the creamy butter and sugar, they blend into pristine silkiness. The flour, eggs and vanilla crumble in together. The whisk romantically flirts around and takes them on a spin. In goes some spice to enhance the flavour. Delicate hands bind them tenderly and shape them with care. Lined perfectly, they are all set to get ignited to the heat and passion of the oven. The wait, now gets restless. Finally out comes the perfectly baked cookies. I dust them with sprinkling of sugar and they are all set to be tasted.

Aromas beckon

taste buds savour sugar and spice

perfect symphony!


In response to Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge #40 – Sugar and Spice
