Here’s an interior view of one of my kitchen cupboards. Why this? Just because opening doors, any doors, can make me think…





I placed them there,

side by side,

in time so long ago.

Clear jars of

sugar, flour and oats.


And  now my memory floats,

between the sweet and light,

the  rough and dry,

the weary why,

of long ago.
