Magic: Music Poetry Monday

Poetry Monday's once a week.
I bet you know which day.
I don't participate every time,
But today I've come out to play.

My friends assign each week a theme,
Music is what they chose.
Now it's up to all of us,
to put our thoughts into prose.
Looking at someone's play list,
can really say a lot,
what genre is their favorite,
or which band's currently hot. 

"Tell me what one song you love,"
over coffee, a new friend inquires.
"All-time favorite, number one,
that speaks to you, inspires."

Not sure how to answer him,
Desperado? In You Eyes?
Every Breath You Take? Sweet Dreams?
My hometown's Aerosmith takes the prize?

"Impossible to pick just one,
that's better than the rest."
She stopped, thinking through her point,
about this she would not jest:

"Sometimes when life gets me down,
and I begin to quake,
to the kitchen's where I go,
it's soothing just to bake."

"But in my darkest moments when,
I can't reach any goal.
When, with time, it starts to seem,
that bad luck's on a roll."

"On those rare occasions if,
I feel I've lost control.
When I just can't catch any break,
over time, that takes a toll."
"Whenever that should happen,
life has dug me a deep hole,
I know that I can count on this:
music soothes my soul."

Peanut Butter Brownie Pie        


Printable Recipe

2 cups quick oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 stick butter, melted

3/4 cup chocolate chips
4 TBSP butter
1/2 cup peanut butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
OPT: garnish with mini peanut butter cups, serve with whipped cream or ice cream

*Whisk together the quick oats, brown sugar, and 1/4 tsp salt. Mix in the melted butter, then press into and up the sides (just to the rim) of a lightly greased 10 inch pie plate. Refrigerate.
*Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
*In a large bowl, melt the chocolate chips with the remaining butter and peanut butter until smooth. Whisk in the sugar and set aside to start to cool for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, whisk in the eggs, and finally the flour and the remaining salt.
*Pour into the pie crust and the filling out. Bake for 30 - 35 minutes, until the crust is browned and the filling is set and crusty looking.
*Cool completely before slicing.
*OPT: serve topped with whipped cream or ice cream.



  1. Ohh! I love all your favourites! And so very true--music does soothe the soul. And if you can add a bit of pie--Heaven!

  2. Oh my, peanut butter and brownies! I couldn't tell you what one song I love because I love so many. But, when 9/11 happened, I turned to a band that isn't even from the United States. I listened to The Scorpion's Winds of Change over and over and over again. If it had been a record and not an MP3 I may have worn it out. I don't know what it was about that song, but it was what I needed to pull me through the immediate days after. Alana

    1. In a situation like that, there's no need to make sense over what we turn to, just be grateful that we can find comfort.

  3. Everyone's taste is different, and that's good. It makes life interesting.

    Music is a blessing, no matter your favorite.

  4. Music is my therapy. I love all kinds from opera to Bluegrass! Right now my favorite song is "Fancy Like" because it just makes me smile.

    1. Anything that can make us smile, especially these days, is everything.

  5. Your pie has got it has to be healthy, right? :-)

  6. I need a slice of that- stat! it looks so good.
