YouTube Poem: Mother’s Culinary Dreams

 

For the print version and commentary, please check out Mother’s Culinary Dreams at LetterPile.

Freelance writer, poet, yogi and photographer from Santa Barbara, California. I write and take pictures about a variety of topics, from my early childhood in Philadelphia, to my years as a family therapist, and finally to my soul-searching years in California. The things that move me may have a humorous or serious content or both. Either way, I hope my poetry, pictures and stories resonate with you.

  1. Excellent! That was funny and also very poignant.

  2. Bless her heart, Mark. A lovely poem. I am sure she is chuckling wherever she is.

  3. My mother was the opposite – when she bemoaned her lack of talents in other directions we would say ‘but you are a good cook.’ We always had home made cake and she made Dad a rich fruitcake every week.

    • It’s a shame your mom minimized her cooking talents. Anyone who could make a good fruitcake is worthy of my praise! Thanks, Janet.

  4. No doubt wonderful memories!

  5. Amazingly well written!! So funny and not crude.

  6. Awwww. This is so sweet. Love hearing You read Your work. Cheers! πŸ™‚
