NaPoWriMo 2/30: Blueberry Scones

Todays prompt on is to write a poem inspired by, or in the form of, a recipe. I’ve been on a quest for quite a while for the perfect blueberry scone recipe. My local coffee shop has the best I’ve ever tasted and I’m determined to make a scone that compares. So far, I think I’ve tried three different recipes with the last one from NYT Food being the closest. So, here’s my little poem about the blueberry scone. (Again, rough draft.)

Blueberry Scones

I introduced you to blueberry scones,
the taste of sunny butter with a pop
of purple stars. We sat in our favorite
coffee shop, munching and musing,
tearing off bits of billowy clouds
that melted on our tongues where only
kind words were spoken and only smiles
were spread.
