In Her Kitchen – Poetry

I managed to check in for #MondayMusings on Instagram but couldn’t carve out the time to share the post here. Oh well. This week, my muse is Kinimi Kitchen, a cooking show led by friend, Kirbee. She invites people into her home and get them to help her make all these really delicious recipes. She was invited to share samples of her food at Pottery Barn, so I decided to stop by. She had this mac and cheese BBQ chicken thing as well as BBQ quesadillas. Y’all. It was so dang good. It was definitely one of those things you eat and immediately know it’s going to go downhill fast if you get a chance to fix your own plate. I’m so glad she was only giving samples because I would’ve been in for trouble.

Anyway, check out all of her shows on YouTube as well as her Instagram page @Kinimikitchen. Hope y’all like the poem I came up with.


In Her Kitchen

A savory melody begins on my lips

Notes of zest build on my tongue

Then a crescendo of taste swells in the corners of my mouth

Traveling warmly down my chest

Pleasant heat hums throughout my body, my fingers even

Only she makes spice feel like a song

In her kitchen

Food is the instrument

And she creates symphonies of flavor



I'm Mariah. Jesus is my homie. I live in (and was raised in) the south. I am, as often as possible, actively grateful for my family because I understand their life giving power. Really dislike melodramatics. Really love reading and writing so much so that I aspire to be an author. What else?
