Shadow Shot Sunday...Mmmmmm...

I planted a seed
in sandy loam
I wait for the sun
and I wait for the rain
green masts rise from Terra firma
as neon green sprouts spread on seas of soil
great green sails are set
sprite sentinels of culinary magic
race for sun ports
portage for my sailing greens
golden boats laden with booty
come ashore
butternut squash pie
awaits the baking
as we share the bounty
in the season of harvest
we share the bounty
and the hope
of the harvest

remember...

Butternut Squash Pie, is it kinda like pumpkin pie maybe? that's a new one, but anything ending in the word pie has to be good!!!

Love your blog. It gives me such a great feeling of peace and reminds of me home and being a young child.

Tom Hilton said...

Mmmm...pie. Sounds wonderful. I love that crust shadow.

Ralph said...

The fluting of the crust makes a wonderfully delicious shadow. The squash pie seems wonderful , with the hint of nutmeg in each bite. I'll take mine warm witha slight dollop of whipped cream. Please?

Sylvia K said...

Sounds and looks yummy! Love your words as always! And, yes, I'll take mine with a dollop of whipped cream, too!

Happy SSS!

Sylvia

I have not heard of that pie, but why not... It does looks really tasty and I had never thought of looking for shadows in the kitchen.. Happy weekend... Michelle

Rinkly Rimes said...

An edible shadow! Great!

Dimple said...

The pictures are beautiful, but the words complete them. Thanks for sharing.

Rosebud Collection said...

What a wonderful poem/shot..Darn, made me hungry.Always exciting to have things grow and do something with them. I feel so rich.
Happy SSS.
(would you believe, we had snow the other day, melted now..)

Martha Z said...

Wonderful blend of thoughts and photos. The winter squash, the end of the harvest. For earlier generations it was a food that could be stored for later.

Hot Fudge said...

What are you trying to do to me? Here I am desperately trying to shed a few pounds before the Great Christmas Binge, and you put this ... drool ... feast for the eyes before me. Now I will have to get that butternut pumpkin out of the fridge and make one for myself. Thank you so much.

bobbie said...

Both great, but I really love your pie crust.

Yummy on every single count.

You can write poetry, take wonderful photos & now we find you can make a great fluted pie crust. What a multi-talented woman. Jan

Love how the ideas of earth's bounty and sailing are melted as one strong energy force! Fascinating and beautiful!

Your pie is definitely a mmmmmmm factor. Looks utterly delicious!

As for me, still no sign of slowing down just yet! But in two weeks it could be a different story! Most of my posts are scheduled from the weekend! I missed about four days' postings last week which is most unlike me! I haven't even wandered here to comment either!

But I love teaching and report writing is all part of the package! I'm also setting up a creative writing blog for students! That is taking time too! But that is heavenly work! I love it! Many students are blogging with writing never seen by teachers' eyes! I am so thrilled! (Messenger style chit chat is not part of the deal! This is writing they want for posterity!) Slowly this is evolving but it has a long ways to go!

SUPER HUGS to you as always! So often I think of you!

Beverley Baird said...

What great photos - and love your poem!

Jane said...

Now I'm hungry!

Hey Harriet said...

That pie crust shadow is sweet. I've never had Butternut Squash Pie before. If you could save me a piece it would be most appreciated. Make it a big piece thanks! :D

Catherine said...

what a mouthwatering opening shot...

Joops said...

The pie looks tempting!

Come and find out on how to become tall at my page.

Sam said...

Oh yes please! That looks divine - and it makes a very good shadowy shot too!

Paula Scott said...

What a delicious image!! It looks like it will be (or was) a wonderful pie. Great shadow.
Also love the green squash-is that butternut?

Uncanny Festoon said...

I wish I could slice a piece to go with my Sunday coffee. The the strong contrast of the shadow.


Joy.......always

storyteller said...

Yummy shadow view and poem that makes my mouth water ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

Nice and Easy Antiques said...

That sounds and looks delish!!! Thank you for your lovely visit!

Dan Kent said...

Love that wavy shadow. You certainly are on the lookout for shadows - I wouldn't have been able to think about anything but the pie! Also I spent hours listening to your music last night - great selection.:)

patk860 said...

i agree...mmmmm! or yum!

christina said...

Nice shots!!

donna baker said...

So your garden foray went well this year? Does the squash pie taste like pumpkin pie? Saw it was in the 70's in Iowa Sat. Did you plant fall crops too? You could have with those temps.

Icy BC said...

Yummy shadow! :-)

twobarkingdogs said...

Hmmmmmm. Pie. Yummy!

Patti said...

ooh squash pie - I had it for the first time last November. It's delicious.

the shadow from the crust is a great capture.

Hope your Sunday is peaceful. I like the title of your blog, makes me want to take a Sunday afternoon nap.
