Recipe: rosemary mint cake with carob rabbit icing
For the sauce:
one carob rabbit
Then in a haiku pot over a catching fire*:
melt rabbit, slowly adding seven of drops of lemonade luck,
stirring carefully until just disturbed.
For the cake:
one root chained
whole bottle of extracted almond moon waiting
two cracked lingering specters
four drops of violet hair color
two and half cups of empusan curves inverted
(the sweetest you can find)
When well blended, pour into a cauldron, side dishes of the mind,
or grandmother’s bundt cake pan
Bake a well-versed poetry oven or Easy Bake
until golden brown and barely writhing.
Consume it however you want:
Let it cool, turn it out on a woman’s dressing table and drizzle with icing…
Scoop it straight from the pan into a bowl with rabbit sauce and cherry blossom ice cream…
or use your wonderful, delicious imagination…
Just don’t forget to lick your fingers.
and everyone with the munchies at dVerse

Delicious. As many others commented, it’s clear that you had a lot of fun writing this, which makes it fun to read. I’m still discovering all the writers and their blogs associated with Red Wolf Poems, and am so happy to find yours—wonderful poem, makes me itch to write something inspired by it–and visually beautiful blog–are these rabbit sketches in the frame your artwork, too?
Welcome. I am delighted to meet you as you journey around Red Wolf Poems blogs. This was indeed a fun poem to write. Rereading it reminds me that I need to have more fun with my writing whenever possible. I wish I could claim the rabbit art, but no, neither are mine. I cannot locate my file which tells me who did the border art–it is probably Hokusai, Hiroshige or kimono art. It might be another artist whose name I am less familiar with. The banner art is by Leslie White. You can find a link to her blog in my blogroll. She very generously painted the art, and my blog has been transformed into home ever since. Thank you for visiting and commenting. I look forward to reading your writing.
This is so cute.
I remember that I had so much fun writing it. Most of my writing is my serious in tone, so opportunities like this are that much more enjoyable. Thank you for stopping in to read.
Then in a haiku pot over a catching fire*:.. Oh, I wish I had a Haiku pot! This is wonderful, imaginative and soooo much fun.
😀 Delighted you had fun reading. Hope you cook up something. Let me know if you do.
I cooked a little something up but not the sumptuous feast you did…
Yeah! Off to read it.
Brilliant!! What a fun way to bring a poem to life!!
I love this, “bottle of extracted almond moon waiting”
and many other lines as well!! Thank you for sharing such a wonderful example, Tawnya!!
This one was written just for fun. I hope those who try the prompt are pleased with their dish. Thank you for reading and commenting. 🙂
Hoping to try this one tomorrow or at least at some point soon !! 🙂 Thank you!

Here are this week’s words, in case you find time and inspiration:
Shameless. That’s what you are. You knew I had to write if you mentioned me in your post. Clever, clever girl. Hey! Is that a picture of us on your blog? (I wish.)
It is totally us. 🙂
You really don’t have to write if you don’t have time. I was just afraid people might have missed it since it was kind of late in the week when you posted it. (I think. My days blur together sometimes. LOL.)
Of course your days are a blur. I think you’ve written more crammed into last week than any other week. I could be wrong, but that’s what it felt like when I checked my email updates. 😉 I’m writing as I reply. Your cuteness wins (and I’m not that busy at the moment).
How do you think up thoughts like these? Truly magical.
I was using a given list of words this time. The words didn’t seem obviously connected, and I wanted to do something different form-wise. I guess carob and the fact that I’m dieting triggered the recipe idea. 😉 It was fun, that was the main thing. Glad you liked it. Thanks for visiting. 😀

Sounds delicious 🙂 enjoyed it 🙂
Thanks for coming by for a slice. Glad you liked it. 🙂
Just swinging by to look for a new poem. 😉
Nothing tonight. Worn out. Plan to work out one tomorrow. Also have to finish posts for national poetry month.
My God this is incredible! There are elements to your writing that remind me of another here in “our” blogosphere … someone for who’s writing I “also” have the utmost respect, the highest regard and an understanding of an extremely unique imagination … and that would be Claudia over at dVerse Poets. Super piece of writing young lady!
If this reminds you of Claudia, I am very honored. I love her writing. She usually has so many comments on it there is nothing left to say by the time I get there. Thank you for the compliment. I’m glad you liked it for it was meant to be enjoyed.
Yum! Deliciously surreal and seasoned with humour. Like it a lot…
Glad you stopped by for a piece and enjoyed it. It was good to visit your blog again too.
LOVE THIS POEM!!! WITTY and FUN!!!
It’s the hacked up carob rabbit, makes all the difference. 😉
This was totally enjoyable, Yousei.
Thank you for coming and sharing it with me. 🙂
greetings! to the disturbed women.. aren’t we all.. 🙂 lovely, fun post.. beautiful imagery.. except the hacking bit.. I am gooey about hacking!
😀 Yes, well sometimes hacking can be therapeutic. Glad you enjoyed the fun.
colorful and creative are you both
bake poetry til you burst!!!
Better stuffing on poetry than cake, unless its poetry cake. 😉 Thanks for coming by and joining in the fun.
Hilarious! You left out the eager beavers who are being served. They must have booked 1 year in advance or they get to sit in the kitchen and help with the dishes.Those who could come in their wedding dress would get huge discounts. Hilarious LOL!
Excellent idea. 😀 Maybe those with divorce papers get a free slice? Glad you enjoyed it and joined in the fun. Sommelier for the event next time?
Any recipe that begins with hacking sounds like loads of fun to experiment with though I may have to make some substitutions as our store is not stocked by someone with your imagination!
Feel free to substitute. I borrowed from Shawna’s pantry, and I think it turned out delightfully. 😉 Thanks for stopping in for a taste.
hmmmm…cherry blossom icecream….sounds delicious…and the violet hair color cracked me up…such a fun recipe…may have to try it one day..smiles
Sometimes writing fun is just what one needs. Today was my day. If you do try out the recipe, let me know how it turns out. 😉
Very cute! k.
Glad you liked it. 🙂
Oh…my…now this is a recipe for the ages. 🙂
Quite the pot stirrer, eh? It was fun indeed. Thanks for coming by and tasting a slice.
LOL! I loved it!!
It was fun to write. Glad you enjoyed it.
Oh girl, I am laughing SOOOOO hard over this! You are a riot and so very clever and adorably precious. 🙂 We do make a deliciously sweet mixture, don’t we?
I love this: “stirring carefully until just disturbed” … Since we are disturbed to begin with, I doubt it will take much stirring.
“two cracked lingering specters” … That’s us! And we should totally dye our hair violet to make our husbands think we have totally gone over the edge.
“or grandmother’s bundt cake pan” … Hilarious!
If you’re laughing, then the poem’s a success. It was fun to write, and it finally helped me figure out how I wanted to structure my other poem, at least I think I’ve got it. Let’s hear it for disturbed women! We’re definitely more fun and colorful.
That we are! 🙂
It’s for YOU! hehe it’s great…. so you two have some kind of exclusive club now, huh?
😉 Nah. I had a dozen snappy comebacks to your comment, but not an once of courage to use them. Shawna is a friend made through blogging, very supportive and kicks me into writing her prompts. However, if you want to start a cake club with me, I’ll stomach that with pleasure. Thanks for stopping by and eating a slice. The crumbs you left were full of chuckles.
She mean “ounce.” You made the rabbit nervous.
And I mean “means.” LOL. I just can’t type. 😉
I have been type-spelling everything wrong lately! And I am a notoriously fantastic speller. I don’t know what’s happened to me all of a sudden.
Brain rushing ahead of fingers, that’s my problem. Backspace is becoming my favorite key.
Hmmmm, favorite keys. What an interesting topic. I think mine are “control” and “tab.”
Since you caught that, I’ll leave it to laugh at.
I was going to say yes … but it’s not exclusive. You can write me poems or recipes too, if you’d like. 🙂 Goodness, I even provide some of the words!
Isn’t she fun?
