Eating Ideas - Eating Ideas, The Sequel

Here's a pair of poems for philosophers and poets who know you can feed the mind and heart with words. I liked the way the first one went so much that the second one had to follow. A little while back I posted a similar poem, Eating Prayers.

Eating Ideas

The idea hunter
Builds a good fire just so
And roasts the latest.

Such a wild notion
Found wordsmithing on the trail,
This latest idea is fat,
Spicy and alert.
Drips sparkle in the heart's fire,
Just might be a book.


Eating Ideas, The Sequel

Good ideas, tasty
When young, still better when old.
They chase me home.
Sooner I get there,
Sooner start the deep fryer.

Hear them hiss, crackle
As they fry up. I can't wait,
Chow them down right now.


  1. Your poems are very unique! I will have to come back and do some more reading...these two have piqued my curiousity. :-)

    I stopped by from Tr'ee's blog to let you know how much I enjoyed your poem "Fired God". I loved it especially the last line.


  2. Thanks for your comment. I've had some time off and didn't have to lose all that time to working. I won't be able to visit that much now. However I do hope you will stop by again.

  3. Christopher, I enjoy coming back now and then, just to digest the new insightful words you'd had served up...

    I would like to honor you and your blog though by presenting you with(The Honest Scrap Award), Just stop by to accept your award. I feel it is well deserve. Once I get it posted.

  4. I don't know about awards. I am not sure I want to create more stuff on my blogsite. I have seen these things on the sites of others and appreciate the somebody thought somebody else's work is cool or neat or hot. I guess what I think is, then return and watch what happens next, and share about it. That's quite enough. Or maybe start writing poems in conversation. Now there's really the extra mile.


The chicken crossed the road. That's poultry in motion.
