Poem of the Day



by Kaye Baillie


Kale is not a thing of beauty

matt deep green leaves

as dark as night

their underside a network

of wrinkled veins.


ready for the pot

but there is a surprise!

Glistening glass-like watery jewels

shine and shiver

trapped in membrane pockets

soon to be darkened leaves

  1. Mmmmm…Kale – in particular kale chips. Kale leaves drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with rock salt and cooked in an oven till crisp…mmmm.
    I was introduced to this at a local community garden fair.
    Love the poem – although I personally find kale beautiful 🙂
