Picture it & write – Tasty little morsel

Ermilia’s Picture it & write   (Sunday 19 August 2012)

Once again, here is my offering to ‘Picture it & write’ hosted by Ermilia (Ermisenda and Elizabeth) who invite others to join them by writing a fictional story or poem to accompany an image presented on their blog.

Tasty little morsel….


What shall it be this day?

Will it be barbecue flambé, or would a roast be best?

Seems there are so many delights to be had in the kitchen of our dreams.

A sizzling burger; a soup tureen.

A juicy steak; a flamboyant lasagna.

A dish of extremes; kidney, brain, liver. So much to choose.

My hunger abounds. My taste buds plump. My heart encourages. Oh, the thoughts of love and life.

To produce a dish of flavourful magnificence, one needs the right ingredients.

This one will not do; he is far too thin…

    1. I was feeling rather flippant when I wrote that Anne…. It’s nice to just hang loose sometimes; life can be all too serious otherwise. Or perhaps I am not being flippant; perhaps I would really like to dissect…. No, I was definitely being flippant…. xoxoxo

  1. The way that these three sentences run off each other are amazing – ‘My hunger abounds. My taste buds plump. My heart encourages.’ A fantastic touch. I loved the twist at the end. We have some great dark stories to accompany this dark image this week. Thanks for being a part of it!

    1. Just what I thought too…! I immediately saw an image of strange underground creatures feeding off hapless humans who, for whatever reason, found themselves enslaved by these flesh eating weird ones…. hahahahaha…… wringing my hands together, and licking my lips I say “And what would you write, my little pretty?”
      Do you feel a story coming on…? 🙂

  2. The whole thing reads like one lovely and macabre poem. It flows, and twists, and questions, and kisses the air with delectable menu choices by a vicious but tasteful chef.
    I love it.

    Throw the boy to me, Carolyn. I’ll fatten him up for you. Hee-hee!


    1. Why, that’s incredibly kind of you, Thank You so much… However; I will need him by Christmas; I have the most delicious fricassee recipe I’m dying to try….!
      And, seriously: Thanks Randy, your comment reads like a poem itself..! 🙂

    1. This writing stuff is bringing out the ‘real’ me……
      Pretty creepy; yeah…!
      I’m loving writing, my dear Hook….
      Thank You for your brilliant comments; I adore them!

    1. I’m reminded of ‘Hansel & Gretel’ fame…. Hee hee hee… 😉
      I see a wire cage with plump young tenderness awaiting their time in the kitchen of crime…. (A maniacal laugh rings out…!!! Hahahahahahahaaaaaaa!)
      However; they all escape and live to tell the tale… Thank goodness for that..!
      Thank You Kim, your words are always wonderful…!
