Today
My mind’s tongue tasted
brown sugar melting
on hot oatmeal
Heaping spoonfulls steaming from a cooling pool of milk

Hope
and joy restored
The kindness of giving
Sweet and crumbly crystalizations of heart feeling heart
Open and generous

A
heated mouthful of oatmeal
down the throat
Through an igloo’s tunnel
And thawing for a frozen spirit
