Bake The Pain Away



I baked today

And hoped that if they rose

Then so would I.

As I sifted the flour

I let my thoughts sift too

Speck after speck of tiny thought

Wired and fraught.

Falling like lazy snow

Maybe if I created

Something good to taste

Today would not be a waste.

I would have something to share

To show I care

Or at least pretend to.

Oh that beautiful chemistry

Of exactly the right mix

Of sugar and spice

‘And all things nice’

There’s magic in this kitchen

There’s healing in this bowl

I think I was right to bake today

I feel better in my soul.

    This rolls wonderfully off the tongue! It’s obviously about a bleak subject matter, but the tone seems quite upbeat.

      Thank you so much šŸ˜€ I do feel that creating something, no matter how small is therapeutic and baking has helped me through a dark patch
