Cooking is an Art

Cooking is an art,
That can destress.
When done wth caress,
You are no less a poet.

Poetry is an expression,
That is beyond wilderness.
Words woven with finess,
Like a chef's mission.

(Cooking can be replaced with any other activity and an appropriate change can be made for chef. The inspiration for this comes from Sahid Akhtar's 'Chand Shabdon se Nehin Banti Kabita', a Hindi poem. I also consider this as an ode to womanhood and motherhood whose work in the kitchen is no less than a poet.)
