Sunday 160 - Pie to the Tenth Power


None could bake pumpkin pie 
the way she could. 
Rich, yet light. 
His mouth watered 
at the thought of it 
sliding down his throat 
like God dressed in silk pajamas.
______________________________

I'm sorry, MM. I guess I read it wrong because I was wondering why you have God go down your throat in silk PJs. I think I ate too much pie--not enough blood flow to the brain.

Sounds too calorific to me.

Here's mine: Liquorz-n-Artz

Sandra said...

That sounds delicious...and I don't even like pumpkin pie!
...sorry I've been MIA. Was getting through my nursing rotation. I am back to critique your work once again. It's ok, I'll be gentle, and come up with my usual: that was beautiful! I loved that! You should write a book! comments as needed.

I'll take a slice of that and not even ask for ice cream on the side.

Mine is up

I bet God loves silk pajamas...and funny thing, I was saying today that my mom's pumpkin pie tastes better than any other pumpkin pie I've tasted. (and my mom is a terrible cook/baker, but she can make an awesome pumpkin pie!)

Caty said...

OH and I am gonna put up a 160 tomorrow-well, later today, I should say (-:

Jinksy said...

As cooking was on your agenda, today I've added 160 characters at the bottom of my post! Hehehe!

This is Mrs. MM's pumpkin pie made from my grandmother's recipe. She is the only member of the family who has been able to resurrect it to perfection. The eggs whipped into the filling separate into a layer of chiffon....so tasty.

Caty said...

Mine's up. Now off to work I go!

Enchanted Oak said...

Oh, my Lord. What a wonderful line! You took my breath away with that one, MM.
I'm late but here:
A very terse heroic poem

PattiKen said...

"like God in silk pajamas." What a wonderful phrase. Pumpkin pie - yum!

Mama Zen said...

"God in silk pajamas." Oh, I love that!

Steve E said...

Monkey Man, I realize this is breaking all the rules. I posted another poem today, and don't have time to do this properly. So in a hurry I jotted down a '160'...which follows, inspired by your own 'tasty' 160--grin!


Why oh why
don't they bake
pumpkin pie
all year round

Won't rot
nor spoil
takes a minimum
of toil

And everyone
Mom, Pop, Sis and Bro
likes it
I have found
