What could be better than the aroma of a room filled with baking?
Well maybe a couple of things but it's pretty great!

Cinnamon and Nutmeg -- (pantoum challenge)

Cinnamon and Nutmeg
a swirl of baked confection
a culinary drifting cloud
that floats in my direction

A swirl of baked confection
like wishes from a fire
that floats in my direction
a genie's bottle of desire

Like wishes from a fire
rise magical aromas
a genie's bottle of desire
Cinnamon and Nutmeg

A remarkably good description of the aroma that forces me to make ginger snaps for Christmas.

Well done, Hans.

I can almost smell the spices, mmm...enjoyed the line "a culinary drifting cloud."

You've taken me back to my grandmother's kitchen, the yeasty aroma of kuchen (coffee cake) dough rising in a bowl on the hot air register, then the unforgetable scents of spices and peaches or apples as the cakes baked in the oven. How I miss that, and her.
