Creating 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.
