Boiling the Perfect Egg

Boiling the Perfect Egg

A big thank you to the wonderful yassy who introduced me to the tetractys poetry form. Please visit yassy’s blog as you will be inspired to play with poetry in ways you never imagined.


Oh Davy, this is great! I boil eggs for my youngster and I try to make them perfect. It’s a dance step, just like you said, but so much better! 🙂 I have an egg sensitivity, so I’ll have to experience the egg dance vicariously through your poem and boiling eggs for my son.:(

A simple little tale of an exquisitely difficult art … and still never manage to get it just right.

Fried eggs are my favorite, and you’re making me really miss them. I even dream about them at night. 🙂 And then there’s the soft crackling noise.
