Tinker Posted April 20, 2022 Share Posted April 20, 2022 Comfort From the Rain The spring rain brings a chill that calls for a pot of homemade soup. I chop fresh veggies, anything I can find, carrots, onion, cabbage, broccoli, potato, cauliflower, tomatoes, add some salsa, herbs de Provence, garlic, broth, and more broth, salt and pepper, and allow to simmer. Nothing like when trekking the Pacific Crest Trail during an unexpected storm, hunkering down inside a one-person tent, opening a packet of freeze-dried veggies, adding some water, and heating over a Solo stove to create a cup of hot nourishment. And yet . . . . the satisfaction and gratitude will be the same. ~~Judi Van GorderWild by Cheryl Strayed Prompt: Book report—subtly (or overtly) incorporate a book report or response into a poem about something else.
