Full Meal Deal


Butter on living toast,

you breakfast my morning

with breathless beauty,

food for thought and heart


to sate endless appetite

(heart hunger rarely needs

to loosen its belt); soul

growls, empty, and you,


in so temporary a skin,

exercise your right

to round my malnourished belly

with your dying gift.


Daylily blossoms only last for one day, as their name implies – yet how much their short-lived petals bless our world! What can YOU do today to feed someone’s spirit?

    Incredible isn’t it? All that beauty and glory for a brief day and then gone!

    Can I NOT wear the dunce cap? 😉

    I showed up, how’s that? Ya know, I don’t think I could have daylilys in my yard–I picture myself getting anxious and depressed as the day slips away.
