Warm Cinnamon


Borrowed Kitchen


We hover toward

Warm cinnamon

Hot coffee

And the smell of fresh baked bread

We rise to greet the day

And sit to bow our heads

Around the family table

Where grace and gravy flows

Over mashed potatoes

Little do we know

That all of life’s abundance

Is centered in this room

Where hands are held together

Where scent of Mom’s perfume

And Father’s intervention

Guides us along the way

As we carry conversations

In this place where we convey

Our love
