Bacon Magic

Being a properly raised southern girl

I grew up knowing the magic of bacon

Of course, the ability to wake the

dead when cooked early in the morning

is just one piece of bacon magic

That delicious aroma wafting

through the house can bring forth

the most die-hard late sleeper

 

As Emeril says, “Pork fat rules!”

Yes it certainly does!

Bacon added to anything enhances

other flavors and tickles the

taste buds of everyone I know

 

Now … I grew up with the

traditional aluminum bacon

grease can with a strainer that

was part of the obligatory

kitchen canister set

That can held a place of

honor next to the cook top

where it was readily available

to season almost anything

needing some magic

It was there if bacon

cooked for breakfast did

not produce enough ‘grease’

to fry a proper egg

Handy to add to the bottom

of an iron skillet before

buttermilk biscuits were baked

 

Not owning one of the necessary

aluminum canister sets I have to

use the universal substitute to save

my magic bacon elixir …

a Mason jar that sits at the back of

my stove-top just as handy as the

aluminum dripping can was when

I was growing up watching my

Mom create Kitchen Poetry every

time she prepared a meal

 

As I write, my mouth waters thinking

about freshly snapped green beans

and new potatoes cooked with a good

splash of bacon magic in the pot

I have yet to master the flavor my

Mother created when she cooked

this combo … and I never will

 

The older I become, the more I

use bacon magic in my cooking

Not only does it make my food delicious …

But …

it brings back such lovely

food memories from childhood

Tricky

We go through life

with eyes wide shut

which makes it easy

for those who can

who will trick us

at every step

 

We must change that

to eyes wide open

being observant at

every turn to what is

around the next corner

what each new day brings

So …

We can be our best through

the worst and work magic

daily to leave our Sparkle

everywhere we go …

My Wish …

My Wish …

Carpe Diem Baby

I wish I could turn back time…

reset to that summer day we first me…

restart our lives from that point

And…

get to know you…

love you…

all over again

Have a do-over during the rough spots

and be more understanding when I

need to be as when you need to be

with me as well

Make our time be more specific…

more purposeful…

stronger —

together and alone

But…

Time marches on

Things change

We still love one another

But…

That love will never again

be like that first magical

summer when our love

was young…

new..

magic…

And…

so were we …

Winter Magic

Winter Magic

There is a strange silence

in falling snow like living

inside a cotton ball

 

Outside the absence of

sound is comforting

like being cradled

in a mother’s arms

 

Inside the sound is so

different …

Similar to wearing

ear muffs of childhood

 

I am sure there is

a scientific explanation

for the silence of

falling snow

But…

To me it is only

Winter Magic…

Moon Magic

Moon Magic

Last night the Moon

was magic hanging

in the Western sky

like an upturned

bowl catching stars

Venus and Mars were

putting on their show

to the left

 

Breathtaking in its

Beauty…

Leaving me speechless

as I could not take

my eyes off the sky

 

Jupiter in the Eastern

sky jealous of the Moon

but beautiful in its

own brilliance

 

Tonight the Moon is

just as beautiful

But…

The juxtaposition

of it with the planets

is not the same and

the magic is not

there from last night

 

As I get older the night

sky holds mystery and

awe for me — the mystery

of our Universe and the

ever-changing panorama

of the night sky

Moon Magic

A Full Moon
hangs just so high
in the sky
Mocking Me…
Laughing at Me…
Reminding Me…
 
That…
 
What we once 
had was based on
Moon Magic…
 
And…
 
That magic was 
for us individually…
 
And…
 
Together…
 
Now…
 
It mocks me…
Reminds me…
That I was
Not…
What was 
Meant…
To be…

Pink Magic!

Pink Magic!

Pink…
Shining on the 
inside
 
Rough…
A rugged spiral
on the outside
 
A beautiful 
conch shell
displayed for
all to see
 
My eyes wide
with wonder as
my grandmother
held it to my ear
 
“What is it!”
I asked in amazement.
 
“The sound of 
the sea Baby Girl,”
she replied.
 
Not allowed to 
touch it alone
at first…
That pink conch
began my life long
love affair with the sea
 
My grandmother
is long dead
Yet…
Still when I
close my eyes
I am taken back
to childhood 
And…
I hear the sea
 
I wonder what 
happened to that
wonderful
Pink Magic…

Pink Moon

A rare full Moon sight
called the Pink Moon
April’s Full Moon
 
Striking…
Stunning…
Amazing to see…
 
As I walk into
the bright light night
I feel the
Pull…
Power…
Magic…
of the 
Night…

Full Moon Madness

Emotions run high

A Lack of Clarity

The tide change

As the Full Moon

Wans

Planets and People

are subjected to the

Phases of the Moon

Making all concerned

do things…

Unusual

And

Unimagined
