Setting a Place
Lately I find wisdom
in the kitchen.
Move the dry dishes off the rack
you turn the water on to do more dishes.
Yesterday, I broke a big bowl.
It slipped from my wet hand onto tile floor.
Too many pieces to repair.
I didn’t prepare my hands.
I didn’t remember.
The land is just as important to the house
as is the strength of the timbers,
or the skill of the builder.
the sweet seat
