JUST JOT IT JANUARY – # 27 and PROMPT NIGHT – KARMA

***

LIFE-CAKE

A cake was baked ’til it was done,

Ingredients were added, one by one.

It may have been Karma, it may have been fate,

But seeds were planted, even as we ate.

Child-birth and re-birth, a lifetime of mirth,

One leads to another, as required on this Earth.

Our Life-cake grows in a myriad of ways,

An unknown destiny sure to amaze.

Baked into being in ’61,

Decades of cakes, decades of fun.

A co-incident, or Karmic fate,

Construct your Life-cake on a sturdy plate.

Karma or fate? Foreshadowing or co-incident? This is the story of the cake. The first time I ever baked a cake was when I was eleven years old. It was on January 6, 1961 (I wrote it in my diary). Many years later, my daughter was born on a January 6th. So, every January 6th I would have fun baking a cake for her birthday. 🙂

    “Our Life-cake grows in a myriad of ways,
    An unknown destiny sure to amaze.”
