My Cookies

Baking cookies can be a science

 

Measure all the variables and wait for reaction

 

Not acting fast enough can leave you burned

 

But you must try again

 

Because cookies are beautiful

 

A different type for different tastes

 

That one cookie that you dream about

 

Lust over

 

Creep over social media

 

Some folks are better at eating multiple cookies at the same time

 

It depends  on the baker

 

Sometimes it depends on the bakery

 

As you search the desert tray for the right one

 

You can usually choose the right cookie for you

 

Some like to nibble only once in a while

 

Some need a cookie in their lives all the time

 

Some prefer to have their cookies to be chewy and gooey

 

While others prefer crunchy cookies instead of cookies and cream

 

There are those who hoard cookies

 

Who treat their treats with hostility

 

A ‘cookie monster’ if you will

 

And there are those who don’t like cookies at all

 

The live a ‘cookie free’ life

 

That is just as beautiful for those who like having cookies in their own

 

We hope that the cookie monsters will unlearn their behavior and change

 

That those who one cookie or who nibble on multiples or those who live cookie=free

 

Are acknowledged, respected and celebrated

 

I am grateful for all of the cookies in my Jar of Hearts.
