The Baker is busy in her kitchen — busy creating with love and attention.
She opens her cookbook for the right recipe, knowing the guest best.
Chocolate Chip Cookies
No, they just won’t do, together they each are in season for something new.
A dash of love
A tablespoon of friendship
A cup of heartache
And a stick of unending loyalty
Still not quite the right confectionary.
You mix patience and wise counsel
Sometimes you puree arrogance and self-pity
Yet you whisk away imperfections
Straining it to reveal what you know all along
Your dessert is imperfect and the process was a slog.
Add the sugar
It’s as ready as it gets
The guest is floored and believes it to be the best yet
The Baker is shocked and can’t believe this to be true
Yet it’s the care and detail the guest always valued and it tastes delightful too.
