A Review of Groceries Delivered

Searching on the website

like going down each aisle

I want this— out of stock

I want chips— not a healthy choice

I want pantry foods— ones that keep

red lentils

split peas

garbanzo beans

make a soup— better than canned

make the order Sunday night

Monday 7 am

the joy of groceries delivered

Ripening

Just a few more days

these bananas will be ripe

for banana bread

that is if no one eats them

can’t let that happen

going to hide them now

there will be banana bread

tomorrow

NaPoWriMo prompt on a fruit. So hungry for banana bread. With the family sheltered in, it is hard to keep some foods from disappearing. Cashews are banned so we can’t fight over them anymore.

Ripening

Praise to the Dishes

I want to do a praise dance for the dishes

which presented the evening meal

served the grilled vegetables

ancient grains & hearty soup

I want to shout my praise over cucumbers

sliced into a bowl & offered plain

with their crunch adding to the chorus

of appreciation as they fed me

I want to give an offering to the water

that cleaned the plates & bowls

my hands in the warm suds then rinsed

with feelings of nourishment & thanks
