A poet's dinner

Hello again, today I have a poem and a recipe for Mexican rice! I hope you enjoy and find some inspiration here.

The Poet’s Dinner

A poet sits at dinner
He isn’t eating much.
He is busy watching others
Who he saw at lunch.
He is thinking of their stories.
Wondering where they’ll go.
Hoping they didn’t see him staring so.
He starts to eat not tasting a thing.
He is too busy thinking to hear the ring.
I watch his shocked expression
As a young lady walks in.
She comes to his table
He doesn’t say a word,
I kinda wonder if he’s able.
Her shirt says “Beautiful nerd”.
She has a sweet smile,
He has a serious brow.
They both start talking now.
I watch them share his fries,
And then they say their goodbyes.
They leave happier for meeting.
I look around for better seating.
Until someone else comes along,
And my inspiration is strong.

Mexican Rice

Allie’s Mexican Rice

4 cups of rice
8-10 cups of water
16oz can of tomatoes
8oz of salsa
1/2 cup of Jalapeno (don’t add if you want a mild rice)
1 chopped onion
1 Tbl of chili powder
1/2 tbl of black pepper
3 Tbl of paprika
1 Tbl garlic

Mix all ingredients into a large pot, put on high heat until boils then turn down to low until rice is soft about 30 minutes. Serve with tacos, soups and salads.

I hope you are all enjoying your Tuesday evening! Let me know if you try the recipe. ^_^ Have a wonderful night. I’ll be back tomorrow with a new post!

I wished upon a flying plane…

Hey, sorry it’s been so long… I’ll not make excuses I’ve just been unable to bring myself to write. It happens to every writer, we want to write something others will relate to and be true to ourselves, while keeping to a time line of due dates… You can’t rush art! 😉 Well today I’m hoping to make you laugh or a least smile at your screen.

I wished upon an airplane…
The city girl’s shooting star,
I was amazed, gazing at it from afar.
It kept coming towards me…
I began to tremble with fear,
I felt my heart beat in my ear.
No one even noticed…
Everyone was too busy!
The world is making me dizzy.
What would my last word be…?
Who would hear me call?
Will I be remember at all?
I hear it first, the sound shattering the night sky.
That’s when I realize it has wings and engines to fly.
I wished upon this “star”… A plane.
I was fearful in vain!!!

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve looked up into the city sky to see the lights and planes. Cities have their own kinda of beauty, man made and sometime not very authentic, but still beautiful. I love the city and the countryside but what I love most about earth is all the people! I love people and how we think. I love how we can be strong when we’re very weak. I love how we connect… hahaha I just love people because they are like the stars, lighting this world with flames of hope, passion, grace and beauty! I hope you are all having a fantastic weekend!
