A Little Stirring


Meat, grains, legumes and veggies
All in the pot

I know some who ask every Ingredient
Then choose to eat it—or not

I stir it scooping up all in the ladle
And eat it piping hot

Flavors awaken when mingled in the lot


dversepoets.com it is Quadrille Monday and the word is stir in this 44-word poem (excluding the title). I could have gone in many directions with this one, but decided not to stir things up today.

  1. The soup is not about the ingredients but the way it is cooked…

    We have this dish often. We call it slumgullian, and it is spicy with Rotel tomatoes.

    I like how you describe those picky eaters. I often don’t remember what I put into the pot.

  8. This inspires me to make soup! (As a person who has a huge list of sensitivities, it’s make my own or do without.)


  9. I very rarely buy soup, except to keep on hand for emergencies. Yes, there are soup emergencies! Glad this inspired you!


  10. I want some of that soup. 🙂

    Makes me want some soup!


  12. Sounds delicious. I am, unfortunately, one of those who asks ingredients because I have sensitivities to gluten and dairy.
