Confessions From a Domestic Goddess

“Unbaked” – Muntinlupa, 18 July 2015

a little

sweetness

to take

the edge

off a

bitter

exhausting week

when nothing

has gone

right,

when everything

is in

shambles

and i

am too

tired

to scrabble

to scramble

for the

shattered fragments

left by

the rampage.

 

i seek

solace

in the

gentle tasks

quiet things

nuances of

domestication:

working with

my senses

rather than

logic

trusting scent

and touch

and palate,

not what

the eye

can see

the ear

can hear

and i

rebuild

recover

revive

myself.

 

and a

little

of my

soul

a little

of my

love

goes into

my work

spreading sweetness

around

to all

who need

it most.
