Warm Classic Pancake

Let me sleep in this dreamy fluffy tower.
Breath in buttery sweet scent everywhere.
Cover with light icing powder.
Taste, texture are so perfectly prepared.
What the loveliest tender,
Warmest flavor I found there
Is if every breakfast of forever,
I have you to share.

Night Sweets

Coffee at night,
Warm tart’s so sweet,
You in my thought
Are treats and threats.
I lie awake,
Dream of your breaths.
At least, in sleep,
Our lips meet.

Daily Prompt: Tart

Autumn Pumpkin

Autumn is around the corner;
The sweet apple pie scent in the air,
Marron glaće Mont Blanc,
Pumpkin, pumpkin everywhere!

In bakes, in cakes, in creams
But in the dream, I am unprepared.
Could this year’s seasonal tastes compare
To you who are the one in there?


# かぼちゃパフェ (大戸屋) – My pumpkin parfait after dinner today. Grilled pumpkin cubes were surprisingly good. All was a nice combination but I started to feel a bit cold eating ice cream at this time of the year.

My Favorite Dish

It’s neither tenderloin and foie gras
Of medium perfect cooking,
Nor a fresh lobster from Alaska,
Ten minutes before living.
Warm chicken soup, when I’m far
From home, is all I’m craving.
Who needs the salt from Himalaya,
Family sharing is great seasoning.
Can three Michelin Stars
Cure the scar of heartbreaking?
My loveliest dishes are
Simmered with dad and mom’s caring.


Daily Prompt: Craving

# First time foie gras experience a few days ago + third time being sick in this year but too far to have mom’s cooking + Going to have chicken soup (by myself) tomorrow.

First thought is not the best thought? (w/ lunch)

I had spent my sunny spring equinox day along the river for lunch. Here, I had a cheese bagel, smoked tongue, and a bottle of tea. It was quite enjoyable and reminded me how good my life is since I usually brood for everything.

I loved “Kill Your Darling” so much, so I decided to use this movie’s quote for my first blog. But I just disagree that the first thought is not the best thought, the last is neither, too. The answer is somewhere along the process of thinking and dreaming. And the answer one takes is probably not the best option, but it is the best possibility to make the best happens.

I want to tell that, finally, I feel really better from the cloud of depression in Ph.D., my overthinking, and the third cold heartless winter. And probably because I watched “Homeless to Harvard”a few days ago. It is uplifting, pangs me the fact that my morose life is a result of resourcefulness. I have food to eat, place to stay, work to do, and time to dwell into everything I don’t have such as better university or more exciting life. The worst of all, I don’t know what I want. That’s why I am always lost.

I was going out today because I didn’t want to waste the first spring sun. I had a thousand way to spend the day but since I came up with this idea and it seemed lovely to do at that time, so I just enjoyed it. I should enjoy it, makes it good rather than mourning over the alternatives I didn’t take. Life as well, I have chosen this, what’s wrong with doing it great. The first thought is not the best thought. The chosen one is.
