A definite literary recipe there.

Yes the painting is an artful expression of need if one chooses to interpret your words that way. Wonderfully precise as always.

Dear Tumblewords: Yes, this painting does so look like loaves of bread...how imaginative and abstract you are my dear!

Nice verse, though terse.

Margaret said...

Great use of "artful knead"

Let's hope it inspired (inspires) some people to be more charitable
