Warmth radiates from the oven

as one by one

liquids, solids,

teaspoons and half cups

blend in a worn mixing bowl.

Outside the birds begin to wake,

alerting those sleeping to

dawn breaking on the horizon.

No knowledge of the day ahead,

since uncertain times

make looking forward

seem folly.

Only the stove,

the bread,

the baker

and a bright morning dawning.

For now, it is enough.

  1. I’m glad the baker is also a writer! Thanks for sharing. I baked blueberry muffins this morning. It is bringing “comfort” And for today, first day of spring break, “it is enough. “
