To become a poet; is to bake a mud pie with a light and flaky crust.

delightful when so few words can conjure up so many images!

Yes, a creative poet has to be a baker apart from being a dreamer, architect and a construction engineer. haha. Beautiful.

funny, but I often think of us like bakers (and to me, baking's more creative than cooking and much more like poetry). I call my first batch that doesn't work out as well,before the oven's really warmed up enough, my first draft. wonderful.
