Unwritten Poems

                   
                                                       ... beneath the paperweight / my mother's poems

                           ... she shaped them into loaves of bread

                                                                                      ... fed them to her children

  1. My mum used to bake bread from a recipe which went back in her family history. It had raisins in it. My sister still has it and uses it in her own home in Ontario. I can't bake but if I did I would try to make poetic bread as you have.

  2. I have the impression that your mother had poetry in her. My mother would never have thought about writing poetry, but I like the analogy you have made here.

    1. Yes, one of my favorite things, a good loaf of bread ... homemade all the better. It's really a wonderful metaphor, too. I'm so glad you like this poem. Our moms are pretty special people. :)

  5. Yes indeed. Way that strawberry jam your mom used to make? Lightly toasted homemade bread with jam is fabulous.
