February Sun

The full moon. A bitter wind.
I’m making yam-almond soup:
cumin from Rajasthan,
cinnamon from Zanzibar,
yams from San Juan Bautista,
almonds from Valencia.
Suddenly the February sun sweeps
into the kitchen and I am stirring
the world’s soup, forgetting sorrow;
imagining that outside, the crocuses bloom.




"The Brain, within its Groove Runs evenly -- and true -- But let a Splinter swerve --" Emily Dickinson
