Into the Blue…


These Muffins in paper liners
look and feel like pincushions –
sewing room tool
rather than kitchen product.
Compact like high density foam –
their spicy aroma
the only clue
that they might be edible.
The friend, from whom these were gifted,
loves baking.  “Someday,”  she says,
“I shall cater parties from my home!”
She is my friend and I love her –
so I smile and reply, “That will be fun,”
as my napkin strategically falls
across the paper plate
containing the banana pucks
and slight of hand deposits waste
into the accepting trash receptacle.
