A Poem Just for Her

I saw her on the Costco flyer. She had a brand name ‘Black &Decor”.

At first hubby said, “she’s not going to come home.”

I insisted, I need her. She will be a good helper.

Her counterparts from other companies are more expensive.

Later he agreed to me. Yes, she be your kitchen helper.

When she was home …

I stopped crying with the chopped onions.

She chopped big cabbages faster than I could                                       

She blended the soups and stews for me

She was happy to help me make delicious smoothies

She hummed while beating the eggs. I was happy …

She was healthy and happy … I thought.

Alas, today, while I was asking her to help with my healthy juice, she was reluctant.

I asked her again … Did I push her so hard?

She took a deep breath and cried aloud …

The scariest cry I ever heard in my kitchen.

She stopped. She didn’t say anything.

I tried to wake her up 

But she was gone … for ever.

  6. Hi Bindu, Very nice poem. I enjoy reading it …i read again. I read it loud for Kumar. Its so fun and words are really suits well. Thanks for sharing your wonderful thought about our little little kitchen helpers. Sometime I wonder how we feel very attached to the small things. Hope to see more poems.

  7. Love the poem, Bindu Blogs. Hope you will find a new blender/processor. I like your crochet blanket too. Hope to see the finished abstract cats crochet blanket soon.

  8. Nice one! I had a streak where just about every knock-off kitchen gadget I had exploded, overheated, or just fell limp and lifeless. I learned my lesson: it’s the real thing or I do without.

  9. Awesome poem. I can relate to you food processor demise because mine conked out just the other day. Now I have to decide to get another one our not …. Sigh.

    We get so use to having them around, when they go, it is like losing a friend … another Bigger Sigh.

  10. That was just terrific! Loved it. I have had two Cuisinarts now and I had similar feelings about each of them. One got “cracked stems,” on all of its blades (a very common but heart-wrenching problem made even worse when you find out that they no longer make blades for your model). Eventually, my husband threw it out when I was out of town because he pointed out, quite correctly, that with no blades it was of no use. I was devastated.

    My next one was the “upgraded” model which is so sophisticated it takes 10 minutes to change blades. It weighs a million pounds and the lawyers have insisted on so many safety features to prevent accidents that virtually nothing fits through the stupid feeder tube. I can’t wait for it to die.

    The knowledge that I contribute to this post: the more expensive counterparts aren’t worth the money. Even if you do get them a Costco. Oh woe!!
