What’s Cooking? Not Food…

Theme Thursday, What’s Cooking?

Image credit: Rebecca Barray

what’s cooking

in that troubled forest
where the tree tops
touch the arms of clouds
and where shrubs caress
the ears of the deer 

what’s cooking
now in their minds –
of those who try to read the sky
by speaking non-existing mouths 

what’s cooking
will be laid
on the tray of truth
and eaten
anyway

    I really like this part. I cannot figure out it’s exact meaning and I keep changing my mind about what I think it says. But it is cool anyway.

    Thanks for playing with us for this weeks Theme Thursday. This is a nice addition.

    God bless.
