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?

Steeped Cinnamon

You wait

with breath on hold

for the glimmer of the waking sun

to light up your world, a global alarm clock

which will tease open veiled tresses and release your

joy-steeped beauty like a stick of sweet cinnamon in a teacup

of finely hand-painted china, a compound of the world’s richest organic drink.
