Poetry @ Hays Travelogue

Tamra is doing NoPoWriMo – prompts & writing a poem a day. She writes @ Hay’s Travelogue:

NaPoWriMo #10: thrift store, April 10th, 2009

Today’s Read Write Poem prompt was to “find” a poem in another written work. I found mine in a recipe from 500 Years of Ottoman Cuisine.

Lady’s Belly
is an Ottoman dessert,
the oldest of a group
which includes
waterpump sweet,
vizier’s finger,
and beauty’s lip.

Make the little bellies
from buttery dough
laced with rosewater,
and flatten each one
using the tip of your finger
to impress a tiny navel.

A hot oven prepares them
for the brief, fast frolic
in lemony syrup
that will finish them off.

Serves 4.
