A Valentine's Day Poem...

Valentine’s Day Breakfast, 2009

Take one bout of insomnia
(what to do at 4 a.m. but bake a coffeecake?);

add a blanket of snow over yesterday's bare lawn
(omelets and hash-browns cushion the blow);

stir in two well-rested children,
and a handsome husband,
(blessings, indeed);

and suddenly you find yourself seated at the table
for an accidental feast.

How it all came together –

-- but no matter that…

Just eat.
