One of my friends, D. Wallace Peach, who blogs at https://mythsofthemirror.com, is not only the author of some very intriguing books but also a lot of fun. She has started off the new year with a writing challenge. The challenge involved writing about the accumulated books a person owns and hasn’t had time to read.
What follows is what I submitted. I think anyone can relate to my dilemma.
Ode To My Cookbooks
From the loneliness of your bookshelves, I hear your plea, please read me.
Julia, your chicken is superb,
But, alas, I only have time for a blurb.
Ina, you are my hero,
But my time to read is zero.
Marcella, your pasta has no peer,
But, no time to read I fear.
Dorie, your recipes are so sweet,
But, I only have time for a tweet.
But, do not despair my dear soul mates,
Your recipes again will grace my plates,
As soon as I find the time
To end this silly rhyme.
Thank you Diana for shaking things up a bit this January with this challenge, and thanks to my dear readers for putting up with this bit of whimsy.
