A recipe for a human

Prompt human For sunday sribblings
A Recipe for a human
by marja blom

Take the fruit of evolution
Sift out the intelligence, make it into a solution
Stir in a bowl a spoon of fear taken from a memory
 a cup of happiness extracted from a melody
a pinch of C'est la vie

 Pour a billion words in a blender
 till you get a social stew
Spread it on a layer of gender
 Add the mixture from the bowl
Heat it in the oven of life
Garnish with a purpose and a soul

Add some creativity and fantasy
Take it with love and sensitivity
and a sprinkle of forgive ity
which guarantees longevity

  4. Great way of creating a human being, Marja!
    Thanks for your visit. How sad that the soldiers died in the Battle of Arnhem. This was a miscalculation of General McArthur.

  12. Thanks Marja! Yes we had a heatwave until yesterday, when we were surprised by an enormous thunderstorm with strong wind and lots of rain, which was so suddenly, that the sewers couldn't work well at first and the water came out of the toilets. Fortunately it didn't last long. The garden was full of broken branches and leaves.
    Anyway I wish you a great week, Marja!
