Ode to an egg

Oh but you are … so..so deliciously, teasing me

with your farm fresh bright
Shall I flip you over-easy?

Your lascivious ooze shall remind me of my haste

I must be patient

Or prepare a little bath and let you linger to poached perfection

You deserve a pedestal for your perfection

And softly, softly I shall indulge

But shall I have the patience?
Perhaps just throw you down

And scramble your senses

Until you are




What happens when you are preparing dinner, feeling poetic and letting  your mind wander all at the same time. 😊

  1. This poem has left me feeling peckish! I feel like I need to go to the shop and buy a carton of eggs. I am really impressed how you have glamourised what could quite well have been a very dull subject matter. Bravo!

    1. Fabulous! I’d actually been trying to write a piece before dinner and was struggling. Then I waltzed into the kitchen … and upon cracking the egg shell it was a VoilΓ  moment. Hehe.

    1. Eggs are definitely on the brunch menu today after your comment! And when you visit Vancouver I’ll definitely take you to one of my favourite haunts πŸ™‚


      1. Hehe…just a co-incidence: I happened to have egg today for my breakfast, and later today saw your post with an ode to it. That egg must be really grateful.

        Sure sure, someday, I’ll visit. Meeting you will be on top of the bucket list!!

        I remember my mother making whipped egg and rum “zabaglione” for us even in our teens…incredibly delicious … so I have a long egg history haha. Nature’s powerhouse of nutrition!


      3. Eggcellent!!
        Haha, I must introduce you to Isha Garg at Ishaisms … she is the only other human who speaks the long forgotten dialect of “Egg” haha!


      4. It was just instinctive…that I came upon that word. Long forgotten dialect of “egg”…hehe..
