It

.......It could be if you want it to
It couldn't if you don't
But if you do it will and if you don't it wont
Whatever you want to make it,
that's what it will be;
Any color, shape, or size -
You're thoughts will be the key.
It could be any country, state, or town.
Could be your name, or any place around
It's anything as you can see
It's everything, if you let it be
It is everybody's own creation........
It is your imagination.

Betrayel Souffle

Once trust has been broken
The recipe for repair is:
Two parts people, one part despair
One cell phone with saved
voicemails, photos and texts
One large chunk of memories
of laughter and sex,
Of stargazing and cuddling
So close that you're one.
Add tears and let rise;
Now the confusion's begun.
Agitate and sift thru this
mess in your bowl
Realize: The One who cares least
Is the One in control.

Vichysoise (chilled) - Potato-Leek (hot) Soup

Make this soup a day before, if serving chilled (Vichysoise). Or serve hot (potato-leek) soup and have ready in an hour.

What you'll need:

4 large Idaho potatoes - peel and cut into 6ths and hold in a bowl of cold water (to clean and make sure they do not turn brown)
2 - 16oz. cans vegetable stock
1 qt heavy cream
2 cloves garlic - peel and mince fine (or mash with a mortar & pestel)
2 medium sized leeks - (white part only) - cleaned and chopped into small 1/2" pieces
1 tsp. fresh Rosemary - minced fine
1/2 tsp. dried Thyme
3 scallions - cleaned and finely minced
salt and pepper to taste

What you'll do:

In a 4qt pot, put the two cans of vegetable stock and one can of water. Add tsp of salt to the water, along with the potatoes, leeks and garlic. Cook on high heat and bring to a boil; then, add the heavy cream; again, bring contents to a boil. At this point, turn heat to a simmer. Add remaining ingredients (except for the scallions) and cook, stirring occassionally for about 10 to 15 minutes with lid off. This will allow the cream to reduce and thicken a bit.

Remove from heat and allow soup to cool for about 45 minutes. Then puree in batches, transferring to another pot or bowl, or puree in the same pot with an immersion blender (hand blender)

Refrigerate till cold. When ready to serve, sprinkle scallions into each bowl for garnish as Vichysoise. If eating hot as Potato-Leek, do not chill just ladle into bowls and sprinkle scallions for garnish.

Serves 4-6 - Enjoy!!

Staring

Spending Friday Nights Alone
Call up people - No one's Home
Reminice of finer times
Playing poker, winning dimes
Laughing, joking, never lifting a brow
But this is All forgotten Now
For No one wants to give their Hand
On Friday night to some old man.
What's even worse is - - this man is lame.
No one to help him. Is life but a game?
Each person a player just getting one roll.
See who can do best in life as a whole.
He once could compete his body so strong.
But he's had his present condition so long.
This condition of empty, miserable years --
People know it as Age; His eyes fill with tears
Alone in his room day after day
His eyes reflect the room of gray
Fragments of paint dangle on end
He stares into space as his spirits descend
He turns his stare from the wall to the moon
Yes, he's aware, that death's coming soon.

Day Life Metaphor

Day-life Metaphor

Twisting the Cane
That opens the Blinds
Day Infiltrates
The Darkness Unwinds
Splashing Sun Rays
Force a squint
From your Eye
Energy's Felt
A Day Ripples By
Letting one into
Your Life, When Unsure
Is A Risk with a payoff
An emotional Cure.
No Longer Alone
A compadre per se
Can be the Metaphorical light
To a former Dark Day! Jeff Davis
