one quick slice

of the knife   

the orange is now in two


with this token   with a tortilla


from the oven


with two cups of hot coffee

we honor

our home with a name we hope


will come to mean something

new shiloh   

a place of peace   we feel we need it   


we feel the need to push back

against these four walls

The simple act of eating breakfast metamorphoses into a prayer, a benediction for difficult times. I read this one over and over, and felt better. :)

It is breakfast time in my home here in Greece and in your words i found my self.Love your work!!Good morning!!

I like this. A lot. The sliced orange, the coffee, the tortilla, the name of the place, the need to push back. In just 14 lines of dimeter-trimeter, you've given us the picture of a world good enough to live in.
