Tuesday Poem

Every week I’m posting a “raw” poem — unedited, fresh off ┬áthe pen — in hopes that some of you will join me in this creative discipline!

Cooking

Beans

water

onion

tomatoes

Dull things each but simmered

in my soup pot,

with spices to fit my mood and the rainy day

they will bubble into something

delicious.

Today my story seems

duller than a can of beans.

But I’m trusting I can

cook it into something delicious

too.
