Heat and sweet and all that we keep between
Our hearts steaming while we go on dreaming
Stewing up a life worth living, one enriching
Enough to fill our bowls.
Spooning up bites light as a song on a joyful tongue
Tasting safe for the first time, finding it robust as wine,
Rolling it in the mouth, swallowing it down
Where it settles deep in the self.
Heat and sweet and everything we mean to bring
To our table, meld textures and flavors
Simmering slow peace into our beings' ease
Until we memorize the worn receipt.
