The recent Poetry Park prompt is about hope with a well-known quote by American poet, Emily Dickinson. The posting is found at http://thepoetrypark.com/2015/03/02/9-where-theres-hope-theres-life-2/?sn=c&c=154#comment-154.
There is such a range of hope, even in the small daily tasks we undertake. This, I experienced with my attempt to bake bread. Working with yeast was a challenge but, after a couple of tries, the yeast rose to the correct amount for this beginner. The end result, pictured below, was a tasty accompaniment to a homemade soup.
I baked a loaf of bread today —
Irish brown with a touch of molasses —
my hope that it would rise for a soupy supper.
If you have some hope to make bread, check out the recipe for Irish brown bread with cultured butter at Cityline.ca. Enjoy!
