Uninvited, unwanted but that stubborn guest will still show up. Right in time. Though his estimated time of arrival is unknown. Could be tonight, in the next hour, next minute. The moment you hear his fears footsteps at your doorstep, you’ll be ditched to the backside of the moon, six feet under; a place unreachable and silent as a dead shore where water never meets the land.
Name of this inevitable, deadly guest is DEATH.
His raven-black, voodoo presence will choke you, make you feel like a dead wood drifting downstream. He is like a treacherous chunk of cloud curtaining your windows from letting in rays of the sun. You’ll kneel down to God and pray hard for one last time for an exit as you are caught in a spider web; stuck, froze-up in a dark, dingy dungeon – your GRAVE, trapped in an unknown bottomless pit where there is no swimming forward or backward.
But today you are still alive. Until your Guest arrives, celebrate life by doing good deeds, e.g. making Creamy Caramel Flan for family and friends.
Let the guest pop over in the Spring of hope or in the Winter of despair. Welcome him. Do not worry. Your Good Deeds will make your final departure a grand, magnificent and memorable one.
Tastes ‘perfect’ too 🙂 Try it. It won’t disappoint you, I bet. Thanks for stopping by. Love.
Love flan! And yours looks gorgeous. Don’t think I’ve had it made with cream cheese — what a fun idea! I’ll probably eat the whole batch so there won’t be any left for the “guest” and he’ll go some place else. 🙂
Peace & Blessings be upon you, John ❤ Thank you for liking the 'cream cheese' idea. I didn't brainstorm it though. Try it and see how filling it is!
Stay blessed, happy and healthy with your dear and near ones ❤
Your flan is as beautiul as your words are darkly delicious.
🙂 Inspiring words 🙂 Thank you, Your Highness ❤
Love this caramel flan recipe! The use of condensed milk is such a nice touch. I don’t make flan often because every time I do I am tempted to eat more than I should but this recipe just screams for a flan night soon. Thanks for sharing!
Happy to know that you liked it. And many thanks for swing by. I’m you fan … in case you didn’t know 🙂
I love your poetic description of death! Yes, let’s not forget to celebrate life and respect the grim reaper, for death is a part of life. If you reject it, then you also reject life…
Lovely shots (especially the one of the roses) and heavenly flan!
The flan looks lovely… would have tasted awesome too! Going to pin this up for sure… amazing pictures… love that you keep using flowers for your pics… 🙂
Jazakallah so much for the kind compliment, dear Rafeeda ❤ Stay blessed ❤
I am sometimes obsessed with the idea of Death and dark and sombre. There is a portion of the poetic soul which admires that side as well. I read a lot of Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche work.That comes into my writing as well. I have always embraced every day as it comes. When I am deep pain I think of the approach this silent dark guest.
But as you know, the poet within me doesn’t overpower the lively woman inside me. I continue to fight, embrace, cook and write for my family. Lots of Love
