Baklava, Maybe


thin and translucent
turns sunlight to sugar
stirs my spoon

phyllo dough from scratch
layers repetitive
melt in your mouth

Decadent, rich
lots of honey and nuts
and with a little Vin Santo
you will sleep like a cat.

Wrote this with my writing group recently. The prompt was ‘holiday dessert.’ I’ve discovered I like writing about food for some reason! Had a lot of fun with this one too: Belly Dancing at the Breakfast Buffet and this: Pecorino with Honey  

Thanks for indulging me! Wishing you a sweet New Year xoxo
