Spaghetti

      I’m standing here
      With a glass of wine
      Chopping onions,
      Mushrooms, a little garlic,
      You do this too, I know

      Tears flow, from the drift
      Of onion mist
      Yet, tears of sorrow  joy
      Laughter embellish
      the seasoning of seasons

      The sauce bubbles
      With tomato’s promise
      And pomp
      Cheeky, this brew
      That always calls us back

      I grind the worries
      And joys of the day
      In the mortar and pestle
      Until the crackling
      Softens to a whisper

      It blends into a powder
      I add lemon, a zest
      So a tingle on the palate
      Remains, for a sassy taste
      Amid the oregano and basil

      Pasta stands tall, inflexible
      Like a palace guard
      But sighs in the dancing water
      As that self-same guard wilts
      in the summer sun

      Crusty bread yields
      Its yeasty breath,
      With every chunk
      Broken off, ragged
      For the sauce

      We get together like this
      Abiding in moments
      Of slow feeding
      And talk
      Savoring the evening
