April 11 -- Morning Concert -- Today's Word is "Soup"


Recommended Posts



Morning Concert

A groan grinds above
while redwood limbs sway
out and back and forth
in harmony with the cooing
and chirping of local birds.
These are the sounds
of my mornings as I sit
in my garden and listen
for gossip in the hush
and whispers in the wind.
                   ~~Judi Van Gorder                                                      

Prompt:   Whispering Wind











 Today's Word is "Soup" 

The liquidy cuisine starts 
with boiling water 
and/or broth brewed by 
sucking the goodness from bones
or fresh-picked veggies.
Then choices are made of what
to add, so many good foods
can carry its theme.
That's where the magic happens.  

Mostly served hot,
sometimes cold.
one simmers on my stove
right now, sending a rich 
aroma wafting through my home. 
Later I'll ladle 
it into an earthenware bowl 
and serve me and whoever might happen by.
Today I made one of my favorites,
savory, spicy, garden-vegetable.
                           ~~~Judi Van Gorder 

I had a choice of 2  Prompts today.
Prompt:  Define a word.
