At dVerse Mish is hosting the Haibun with an invitation to write about soup.
“There ain’t no point in making soup unless others eat it.” Kate DiCamillo
How does one make soup? Ingredients, of course, and thoughts run to vegetables, meats, spices and herbs, and ways of blending, concocting, adapting them. And not forgetting to add some fresh bread, preferably thick, toasted and buttered. But that is not the whole, that is not the recipe, that is not soup. There’s more to soup than liquid.
Take some invitations and gather a table round. Add a dash of greetings, kisses, hugs and handshakes. Add some humour and wine, fold in strands of conversation and pursue a line of two. One must listen between the lines. rejoice with those doing well, hold those who are struggling, engage the quiets ones. Encourage, communicate, celebrate. Be present. That’s by whole soup.
Vegetables washed pungent spices bathe the air conversation grows. Copyright 2022 ©Paul Vincent Cannon All Rights Reserved ®️
